Back about twenty years ago the bird log at Milford Point had occasional hoaxes. I remember a listing of a Double-Striped Thick-Knee, for example. They were entertaining. They were ridiculous sightings.They were also all signed by Joe Isuzu--people of a certain age will remember him as a sleazy TV car salesman in Isuzu ads. If anyone believed Joe Isuzu, he would have been dumber than Homer Simpson in a D'oh moment. Needless to say, none of them ever made it to the RBA, but they were good for a chuckle.
