I was leafing through my battered copy of "Where to find birds in North- 
East Queensland" (by Jo Wieneke) the other day when my eye happened to 
fall on the "VERY RARE - ACCIDENTALS - FEW RECORDS" pages. The 2 species 
that jumped out at me were Red-rumped Swallow and Bristle-thighed Curlew. 
The book was printed in 1992, so perhaps you weren't the first person 
to see one. When I get a chance, I'll contact Jo about the who/where/when
info on the sighting(s). Perhaps there is a slightly better than expected 
chance of future sightings.
