g'day all,
Today after a long absence, I visited Lake Mary Kathleen (31km east of Mount Isa on the East Leichhardt River)
I was only able to access a limited number of locations around the lake plus the reed beds below the dam wall.
Total number of species recorded was 52, but did include...
... Baillon's Crake ( in the reed beds below the dam wall)
... Green Pygmy-goose (a pair of birds)
... Silver-crowned Friarbird
All  these species are at the limit of their territory.
I observed at least 2 pairs of Common Koels (my first sighting for this season) plus a number of Dollarbirds which only arrived at the Isa a week ago.
There was another reed inhabitant that was very timid and disappeared before I had a chance to identify it.
Regards, Bob Forsyth, Mount Isa, NW Qld.
