Yeah, me too Mike. There is a search facility into which I put
Broad-billed Sandpiper and no less than 54 came up! I wonder which one
patrick was referring to.??

This exercise shows just how hopeless I am at negotiating web-pages
which is 
why I rarely visit them! I couldn't find any shot labelled Broad-billed 
Sandpiper! I did find one of a Curlew Sandpiper correctly labelled as
A Dunlin at Cairns would be very exciting. Less than a handful of
records in 
the whole of Australia. Perhaps that was the shot originally titled 
Broad-billed Sandpiper relabelled as a result of Chris Corben's ID
And relevant to recent discussions, it also shows why BARC is essential.
While searching for it I did find two other ID errors but I'd be
to know if others agree. I'd say the Sacred Kingfisher is a Forest and
Black-naped Terns are Little Terns. In my experience the incidence of ID

errors is disturbingly high on web-sites.
