An attempt to post this yesterday also seemed not to get through.

Just received a phone call from Richard Baxter. His party has just joined a group led by David James who has been on Cocos (Keeling) Islands for a few days. David's group reports a Eurasian Hobby on Horsburgh Is and a Watercock on West. There is an obliging Yellow Bittern on West and Richard reports a Large Hawk Cuckoo and possible Japanese Sparrowhawk on West and the island residents report a large raptor! There is water from a recent cyclone everywhere.
