   Published sightings for the week ending 12 Oct 2014.

   Thu 9 Oct Little Raven Sea Elephant Estuary
   2 birds which appeared slightly small with different jizz to the very
   common Forest Raven. Comparative beak photos showed they had a smaller
   beak than the Forest Raven.

   5 sharpies and a single Curlew Sandpiper at a wetland 30km north of

   Tue 7 Oct California Quail Tine Mine Road, King Island
   Great views of 2 males and 2 females on our second visit, having had
   less than desired views on our visit the previous day, as well as
   getting our rental car bogged!

   Red-kneed Dotterel Shag Lagoon, King Island
   Single bird seen on the back edge of the lagoon on both 7th and 8th
   October. Distance precluded all but a confirm ID photo. Also a single
   Pink-eared Duck and the amazing site of 10 Latham's Snipe feeding in
   the shallows.
   Rob and James Hamilton
   Mute Swan Lake Flanagan, King Island
   Single white swan viewed from a distance of around 400m in strong wind.
   Good scope views but in the conditions getting a good photo, even using
   a tripod, was impossible.
   Rob and James Hamilton
   Curlew Sandpiper King Island
   Single bird seen in roadside wetlands just north of North Yellow Rock
   Road on Cape Wickham Road.
