Hi All,

A few minutes ago Adrian Boyle found a Ringed/Semipalmated Plover roosting with other shorebirds in Roebuck Bay near Broome WA. George Swann (Kimberley Birdwatching) has just checked the Broome Sewage Ponds and the long staying Semipalmated Plover is there so this is definitely a second individual.

ID is still pending given somewhat distant views. Habitat might suggest Ringed over Semipalmated Plover - but then both the recent Tuross Heads (NSW) and Corner Inlet (Vic) Semipalmated Plovers were in estuarine habitat.

No doubt more to follow....
