Garganey in Australia
JANUARY 27, 2019
Last week I mentioned the Tufted Duck that had suddenly appeared in Australia and it is not the only vagrant duck to have chosen to reside in Australia at the moment. With so much of the environment in Australia that is inaccessible at any time of year it does beg the question as to how many different bird species do arrive and then leave and never get observed! The first record of the Eurasian Hoopoe in Australia was well documented in 2011.
