Committee's view
Background
Listed as " an unconfirmed sighting of one bird in Pulau Ubin" in SINAV 19:3. In Wang & Hails (2007) it is stated that two birds were seen, while in Lim (2009), it is stated that one summer bird was seen. Given that it is not reported anywhere if this record was ever confirmed, we are rejecting it although the record is accepted by both Wang & Hails (2007) and Lim (2009). Moreover, another bird was supposedly reported a month later at Changi (see Record Number 320) which might have been the same bird.
Verdict Not accepted (Unverifiable)
