BARC has received a submission on a Dunlin seen by Pattie Parker in the
Tuross Lake Estuary, NSW on the 5 January 2010. The bird was in partial
breeding plumage with black patches emerging on the belly. This is one of 4
rare or uncommon waders Pattie submitted to the NSW rarities committee. The
others were Broad-billed Sandpiper, Long-toed Stint & Ruff.
The submission was a hard copy but has been converted to a file of 116 Mb
that includes video and still photographs. Pattie accesses the sand bars in
the estuary by kayak. She believes that she may have first seen this bird in
November. A 'dumpy brown wader' was seen next day by Michael Crowley but it
has not been seen since.
It is likely that it is still somewhere in Australia and by now should be
obvious at a glance. So when you find it, give me a ring!
