Richard Baxter is back on Christmas & Cocos Islands. He reports that it appears that the rarities that were there earlier in the year seem to have moved on and he had nothing to report from Christmas Island. Cocos is the wettest he has ever seen it and the continuing rain makes birding difficult. There he has found and photographed an adult Malayan Night Heron and is now in pursuit of a medium-sized brown/grey Heron or Bittern with a white rump!
