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!
