A first-winter male Watercock Gallicrex cinerea, a species that regularly migrates from northern to southern Asia, was captured, examined and released at the Cocos (Keeling) Islands in December 2005. This is the first documented record of the Watercock for this Australian Territory (Birds Australia Rarities Committee Case no. 566), the others being for Christmas Island, and is the first Watercock photographed in any Australian Territory.
