I have heard rumours of the following rarities over the last few days 
does anyone have any more accurate information.  ie dates, places,  
observers name, authenticity etc? 
Common Kingfisher    
Christmas Island, A new bird for Australia if accepted 
Savannah Nightjar    
Christmas Island, two birds on the airstrip, nothing else known 
Ringed Plover      
somewhere in Victoria 
Beach Stone Curlew  and White-headed Pigeon. 
Not national rarities but amazing records for Victoria 
Grey Phalarope 
Is the bird still there? what plumage is it in?
