Hi all,

Posting on behalf of Micha Jackson.  Has anyone seen Asian Dowitcher at
Weipa before?  Image can be found at

*At approx. 10.30am on Sunday, March 21 I observed and photographed an Asian
Dowitcher in the mangrove area behind the Albatross hotel in Weipa, Cape
York. It was associating with a group of Black-Tailed godwits and Great
Knots. Preliminary searches of field guides and HANZAB show no records for
this area. Has anyone observed or know of any records of Asian Dowitcher in
western Cape York or the Gulf of Carpentaria? Many thanks,*

* *
