Asian Koel
On May 22, I saw a male Asian Koel at the Christmas Island rubbish tip. As this species has also been recorded on the island in July, it is possible that it is a rare resident there. No koels were calling. I saw no other Asian vagrants, which is not surprising considering the time of year. Abbott's boobies were in full nesting mode, but the hawk-owl was neither seen nor heard at its usual golf course haunt, or anywhere else. Other interesting records for the island included Wedge-tailed Shearwater, Pied Stilt and Nankeen Night-Heron.
