Significant sighting

6 May 2017

Only 5 records in the ALCW area of interest on ebird: 2 in 2007, 2 in 2014, and 1 this year - suggesting they very rarely turn up in the area with years between records

That's interesting, thanks. I checked the Birdata site and there are 3 records for this species over the last 5 years. Two at Panboola and one at Boydtown.
