Latham snipe update on the chat line

I have subscribed to the local bird chat line for several years. The wealth of information that comes across my screen never fails to impress me. Thanks to Chris Davey for this update .

“The Latham’s Snipe ( # 158873) that left Japan on the 9th September appears to have arrived on the northern shore of Irian Jaya having travelled non-stop over the sea. Will this bird now stop and refuel or will it continue its journey to Australia? 

This bird is not only telling us the route taken but also that Latham’s Snipe are still making their way to our shores”
