Until now I had been only 90% sure regarding the identity of the Ringed-type Plover at the Broome Sewage Works. Having just received some excellent photographs taken on 8 February, I am now firmly in the camp which says that it is 100% a Semi-palmated Plover. In my opinion, these photos show the partial webbing between the outer and middle toe (extends about one quarter length of middle toe) as well as the minute flange between the middle and inner toe. Adrian Boyle tells me that the bird hasn't been seen since 11 February but because it has a history of intermittent appearance since its discovery last October, it may well reappear.
