Collared Pratincole – 1st For Australia

Hi all,
For those who haven't seen the posts on Facebook, the Oriental Pratincole that has been hanging around Herdsman Lake in Perth has been re-identified as Australia's very first Collared Pratincole. As of yesterday evening the bird was still present. I imagine this site will receive many visitors across the weekend!
This makes two mainland records for new birds for the country this year with the pratincole and the media-famed Tufted Duck.

Best wishes, 

James Mustafa
