Marg Christian on Norfolk is was telling me today that there is a
Baillon's Crake on the island. It seems to have turned up after or
during the dust storms. It never ceases to amaze me that such a small
bird, seemingly unfit for long distance travel, can cross at least
1100km of open ocean! Coming back against the prevailing wind may be
more difficult. I think they have a new resident unless it is bucking
the trend and heading for NZ (or as they say it on Norfolk, heading for
Kiwi). They also have the first reported Dollarbird, a Whiskered Tern
and two as yet unidentified terns.
25 Gwingana Ct,
