Thanks Duncan,

That's really interesting because I was just quoting (without verification) Richard Loyn's comments who was citing the Vic Atlas of Birds. It is a bit of a concern that with all sorts of people seeking records of unusual birds (atlas, BOCA, BA, Gould League, Me), there is no one recognised place that is collating them all for Victoria, obviously I hope that Birdline can do this in the long term (after money for atlases has expired), but it has a long way to go before it gains the support and could be relied on.

Anyway, thanks for the correction,

Hi Stuart,
              Re the Banded Stilt east of Western Port, there is more than
one record, as noted in the publication Fauna of Gippsland Lakes Catchment.
It mentions records for the Lakes and near Seaspray, ie Lake Reeve. In this
publication, (1983), it gives the most recent as Seaspray 1977. However in
September 1994, there were about 10 on Victoria Lagoon near Holland's
Landing, in company with about 100 Red-necked Avocets. Not trying to be
smart, just thought you would like to know. Best wishes, Duncan Fraser.
