Following up on a report by local David Marshall last week, I was able to 
confirm today the presence of a juvenile Banded Lapwing near the carpark to 
Comerong Island at Shoalhaven Heads. 

The lapwing was seen on a grassy strip between the boat ramp and the kids 
playground across from the caravan park. Apparently this was the same location 
is was first observed last week.
