Apologies for not putting this 'out there' yet.  Its been very hectic (but 
crazy fun)

But species #721 was Semipalmated plover at Simpson's Beach Broome on 28 
October, which appears to be an Aussie Big Year record. This followed an 
amazing week on George Swan's Ashmore trip. I highly (highly) recommend it just 
read the trip report reported on this forum by Mike Carter!

Then off to Lord Howe Island for a nice slow-down, with Mrs and a few 
workmates.  WB Storm-petrel and LHI Woodhen were only ticks.  Highlight was 
meeting and spending some time with Andrew Silcox from Birdlife Aus. 

>From Sydney airport last night I drove to Paynesville, and after a mini-panic, 
>saw the way-faring Franklin's Gull at the 'gravel car park'.  That makes 724.  
>Will drive home now and tomorrow will try for Painted Snipe near home, then 
>the Arctic Tern at Newie. I did update the blog a week ago, after the Semi P, 
>and will try do get more images, including the Canadian interloper from 
>Paynesville, in the coming days.  .

Best wishes
