Simon et al,

Interesting comment about the Banded Lapwings. Perhaps they are gathering in 
numbers around Morpeth (in the Hunter Valley)  because the habitat they use 
there (and around Windsor I beleive) are turf farms, or turf farm edges, which 
are maintained to be short grass! Maybe it's worth checking maintained areas 
such as grass runways etc?

All of these "inland" reports mention the majority of birds we're missing here 
in the Hunter - ie not just migrants but Pacific Herons, Yellow-billed Spoons 

I have another question to the list - where are the Latham's Snipes?
