G'day all, I realise it's still a bit early but we in Adelaide have started looking for migratory waders and have to report that as yet not many have arrived. Suspect that those here have overwintered. So, my query is where have they reached so far? Keith told us some were hitting Cairns recently, but where else are they being seen?
ps: It's a mite embarrassing taking visitors to promising but empty waders sites. Even our 34 Eastern Curlews and one Whimbrel have done a bunk!
