In case of confusion I'll clarify the sighting. As one approaches
Trebonne from Ingham there are 2 cane-train lines to cross. The 2nd
one is at the edge of town. If you walk south along that track beside
the town ( the town is only one block deep at that point) you shortly
reach a bridge over a creek/swamp. It was on this bridge that I saw
the plover about 5p.m. When disturbed by my crossing, it returned to
the bridge. It was not there the next morning.

In the bush to the side of the track I also saw Crimson Finches. I
noticed these appear in the list of rare species but this must surely
be a mistake as they are common in Tyto Wetlands (Ingham) and even
where I go for a walk in Ayr (my home). Further into the swamp there
were Pipits and Latham Snipes (morning) and a Bush Stone Curlew and
unidentified Bittern (afternoon).

I apologise for the late notification but that walk had slipped my
mind as I'd been on a special bird-trip on the same morning to a spot
on Broadwater Creek where I saw 7 or 8 new species (new for me but
probably common for others) and I was focussed on that success. I just
didn't realise how lucky I'd been.
