Asian Dowitcher and 2 Broad-billed Sandpipers at the Esplanade Dec 27, and some Townsville birders reported 2 Long=toed Stint the day before, with no sign next day (of course- it's like a curse here, the exotic rarities get seen or claimed by visitors and none of the locals get to see them.....)

There is a Red-footed Booby at Michaelmas Cay too.

The newly opened Cattana wetlands near Smithfield north of Cairns looks promising, we saw a few Green Pygmy Geese, Magpie Goose, Little Bronze-Cuckoo and heard Channel-billed, also Pacific Baza and nesting Shining Flycatcher.

Good birding for 2010
