Further to Denise Goodfellow's messsage reporting a single oriental plover from
a locality which normally has a few golden plovers at high tide, and at which I
have not observed an oriental plover in 7 years, I thought listers should know
Up to 40 oriental plovers are turning up on a nearly daily basis at the
Nightcliff Foreshore locality, end of Aralia Street (cf.page 24-25, Mc Crie and
Watson, Finding Birds etc, 2nd edition, 2009) . They arrived 7 Sept this year,
and on the 6th last year, and as far as I know they are still coming in most
For those interested in useful, up to date information on bird sightings in
Darwin and the top end I can recommend , to which you
can subscribe free of charge.
As an example a little stint (juv.) was sighted by Jeffrey Stenning on Oct 3
(and was still there this morning watched by half a dozen birders at dawn) at
the Palmerston sewage works. A report will be submitted to BARC shortly.
