I've noticed that the Black-fronted Dotterel is in
my field guide for India as a vagrant. Most of the
Australian field guides show that its range is just
Australia and New Zealand. I've got field guides for
Indonesia and South-east Asia, and they have no mention of this bird. I would have thought that if
this bird had ever shown up in India, then should it
have been recorded in Indonesia or South East Asia?

Doing a little web search gives a lot of checklists
of India which include this species. Its gotten me
a little interested in the matter. Does anyone have
any further information on this?
