I note quite a few sightings reported of Oriental Plover whilst going through 
300 Birding-Aus emails.
Jack and I have just returned from an 8000km (3 week) journey around much a 
fair slab of arid Australia.
Easily our most spot-lit bird on the trip was Oriental Plover (whilst looking 
for a parrot that you no doubt would guess!). We found them (not the parrot) on 
tracks and roads in Queensland (especially the Barkly area with Australian 
Pratincoles); NT (Plenty Highway...good numbers near Georgina River both at day 
and night); and in WA along the Gary Junction Road (one was at our campsite a 
few metres from the camp at the 44km east of Jupiter Well site). Most were 
checked for white underwings in case of an odd Caspian!
Will post other highlights of the trip shortly.
