Dollarbird in Tasmania

Ian May of St Helens has reported the sighting of a Dollarbird at Upper Scamander, on the East Coast. The Dollarbird is an 'accidental' visitor to this state. First recorded from the West Coast at Crotty in 1918, and again from King Island in 1985. If anyone is interested, they might access the birding-aus forum as there are detailed directions given on the locality it was seen.
Monday 12th March. Ian has just sent the accompanying digiscoped image of the Dollarbird at Scamander. He asks if anyone has been there to view it as it appears to be remaining in the area.
