On Saturday 14 November, Rob Ganly had poor views and obtained distant,
unrevealing, photographs of a 'red-legged' wader at Sand Island near
Queenscliff at the southern end of Port Phillip Bay. It was asleep with its
head tucked under its wing so its ID is unknown but is undoubtedly
interesting e.g. Common Redshank, Spotted Redshank (unlikely as it was not a
big bird), Ruff. Chris Lester happened to be at the same place next day but
saw nothing with red legs. Rob returned today (Monday) but couldn't find it.
Access to the area is by permit only and 48 hour notice. In any case it has
gone and might just as likely be found elsewhere. So just be alert.
