Hello all,
              We spent Sat 22/11 to Sat 29/11/2014 birding on Cocos. Below are 
the rarities we sighted.

Common (Eurasian) Teal
Western Reef Egret
Chinese Pond Heron
Javan Pond Heron
Chinese Sparrowhawk 
Pin-tailed Snipe
Saunders's Tern
Asian Koel
Hodgson's Hawk Cuckoo
Red-throated Pipit

Other interesting birds seen were Oriental/Himalayan Cuckoo, Green Junglefowl, 
Common Redshank and White-breasted Waterhen.

There's a large low developing west of Cocos at the moment and we'll be heading 
back there next Saturday with the hope of finding a few additional vagrants.
