Highlights continue to come the Oriental Pratincoles

It is absolutely marvellous the way these birds continue to come up with surprises. One has gone to Taiwan, the site of the only previous overseas record of an Australian marked Oriental Pratincole. The other has gone to India. If this bird remains to breed it will be the first example of an Australian wader breeding in India. What are the other two Oriental Pratincole now going to do – stay put and breed or migrate?
