Hi all. 

I had an exciting find recently with another Nordmann's Greenshank 
being located in the NW of Australia. 

The area where this bird was sighted can only be accessed through 
private property and the owners DO NOT want to be contacted directly. 

George Swann, of Kimberley Birdwatching, saw the bird with me. He has 
kindly offered to arrange a search for the bird on the next suitable 
tide series. 
This would be the 14th, 15th and 16th of December. 

If anyone is keen to look for this bird on these dates contact needs 
to be made directly with George to find out more details including 
logistics, accommodation and costs.

The area that this bird has been found in is within a days drive of 
Broome. Be aware that the area is vast and it is anticipated that 
several days of careful scanning through large flocks of shorebirds is 
required to have any real prospect of relocating it. 

As a potential additional bonus a Eurasian Curlew is also present 
nearby and combined with Broome's Semi-palmated and Little ringed 
Plovers this could be a great chance to see some very rare shorebirds 
in Australia. 

Due to access restrictions this may be the only chance to look for the 
Nordmann's Greenshank (and Eurasian Curlew) this season.
