John Darnell advises that an Elegant Pitta arrived at Barrow Island on a ship and sailed off on same ship when it departed without coming ashore!! He says photos show it to be the white-chinned race vigorsii sometimes split as a full species. I’ve not been given the dates of its ‘stay’. There are as yet no records for Australia.
