Committee's view
Background
Original rare bird report has been digitised. No descriptions in neither SINAV 14:1, OBC 31 nor OBC 32. The document cited in both Wang & Hails (2007) and Lim (2009) is SINAV 14:1 - an article "Birding Hotspots Tanah Merah" - which states that a female was seen from 25-26 December 1999. Note: The SINAV 14 series deals with sightings from 2000. As of writing, the only SINAV 13 (that deals with sightings from 1999) uploaded are SINAV 13:1 and SINAV 13:2 - it is hence unclear if this sighting was ever included in SINAV 13:4, that would have dealt with December 1999 sightings.
Verdict Accepted / Wild (Verifiable)
