Further to my posting last week, Pam Jones and partner Geof Christie report 
that yesterday they saw and photographed two teal on Bechat Besar Swamp on West 
Island, Cocos. One was the '[long-staying]' Eurasian Teal and the other they 
called a Grey Teal. The photos are not the best but show that the second bird 
is either a Grey Teal (a first for Cocos) or a Sunda Teal (first for 
Australia). This is evidently the bird reported mid-winter.
