The Burren Junction lapwing continues to be available to interested 
birders.Along with three others we had increasingly good views between 1615 and 
1700 on Wed 5/7 as the bird slowly made its way from the back of the paddock 
towards the main road.It wasn't immediately visible when we arrived at1530, was 
seen briefly flying towards the Telstra tower, lost to the three groups 
searching for about 30 mins, and then flew into the paddock where the extended 
views were obtained.It now walks with a pronounced limp due to the growth on 
its foot.
My second sighting of this species, having first seen it at Keoladeo NP in 
India in Feb 2005
 Our round trip from Maleny was 1450kms,one day there,o'nite, and back home by 
4pm today.The only other birding of interest was up to 20+ Brown Falcons 
perched at regular intervals on the wires between Bellata and Edgeroi, two 
grain storage hamlets on the Newell Highway between Moree and Narrabri.
