Have just been sent a shot of a wader seen last weekend at Manly near
Brisbane by Laurie Knight. It looks to me like one of the American
Dowitchers in non-breeding plumage. Has anyone else seen it? As Short-billed
and Long-billed are EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to separate, if anyone does see it,
take lots of photos and a fully detailed description of plumage and
