G'day all

Someone just sent me a photo of a number of waders feeding together in a swamp 
in Tanzania.  THe group included a couple of Marsh Sandpipers.  I looked up my 
database because I couldn't remember seeing any when I there in 2010-11.  I 
didn't - but I also discovered that it's been 9 years since I've seen a Marsh 
Sandpiper in Australia.  Prior to 2003 I had a sighting most years back to my 
first in 1988.  Why am I not seeing them any more.  I don't think my wader 
hunting effort is worse now than in the past.

Any thoughts?  Are you all seeing them regularly?  Any survey data available 
over the last 20-30 years?
