On Fri June 15 a flock of 170 Double-banded Plovers at a High Tide roost on S 
Stradbrke Isalnd - Qld. We feel this is a large group for this species although 
we did find a flock 30 at the same location om May 1st.
20-30% of the birds were showing the full double band.
Cannot  find any records for such a large congregation on the East coast.
The sighting resulted from a new monthly Wader Monitoring project for S 
Stradbroke Island. This is a joint project between Gold Coast CC and QWSG.
