We are planning an Easter road trip from Port Hedland to Broome and back,
stopping on the way up at the Sandfire RH and two nights at BBO. Has anyone
who has made this trip at this time of year got any ideas on good places to
stop enroute - eg:
reasonable access to Eighty Mile Beach (especially the bit where the
Eurasian Curlews and Nordmann's Greenshanks hang out);
possible spots for any of the following:  Red-backed Buttonquail, Oriental
Pratincole, Asian Dowitcher, Flock Bronzewing,  Rufous-crowned Emu-wren,
Striated Grasswren, Orange Chat, Tawny Grassbird, Pictorella Mannikin,
Mangrove Gerygone;
nightbirds around Sandfire and Broome itself;
Is the Semipalmated Plover still at the sewage ponds or the Little Stint?

We've read Frank O'Connor's excellent write-up on Broome.

Any advice would be useful. Feel free to answer off line.
