I've just returned from a week of shorebird counts in North-western Australia, carried out with Chris Hassell, Andrea Spencer, Grant and Clare Morton. The highlight (aside from over quarter of a milliion shorebirds) was an extemely attractive, second-winter Sabine's Gull. We found it on Eighty-mile Beach (north-western Australia) on the evening of 22 November, hanging out with a flock of Common and Crested Terns. It was present at the same site, at the same time of day, on 23rd November; we also had a look for it on the 24th, but couldn't find it then. No birders have been to the site since, but the shorebird counts will be repeated this week and the team will be on the look-out.
Cheers, Danny Rogers
