Published sightings for the week ending 14 Nov 2010.

Sat 13 Nov Pectoral Sandpiper Townsville Town Common Conservation Park
A single individual among a dozen Marsh Sandpipers; feeding actively at the grass 'island' at first viewpoint--watched it for about 15 minutes, the fieldmarks of heavily streaked breast clearly and abruptly separated from the white belly and horn/yellow base to the bill clearly visible (legs submerged). Also one Black-tailed Godwit, probably the same bird seen the previous weekend.
