Hi Tun-Pin,

I had a look at HANZAB and the white supercilium which doesn't extend past the eye, the nasal groove, which appears to be 75% of the length of the bill as against 50% for Grey-tailed and the reticulated scales on the rear of the tarsi would point to Wandering. Could the barring on the rump be the 'very fine white tips to uppertail coverts, when fresh' described in HANZAB?

What was the length of the nasal groove?
