Wow, another coastal sighting of this inland species. That's exciting. I see the first one was in saltmarsh on the edge of Wallagoot Lake, and this one is in coastal heath by the looks of the location.

Nice one. We had one in Canberra too for several days in November, the first record there for either 8 or 14 years.

All the sweeter as I was only in Oz for 4 weeks. Some other good birds also seen.
