Hi all
I saw a single Little Curlew in Darwin this afternoon, a particularly 
unusual event for the time of year. My earliest previous record is 
the second week of September.
I haven't seen evidence of many other waders having arrived yet, 
though Common Sandpipers have been increasing for a few weeks.
Torresian Imperial Pigeons are already in big numbers with one bird 
reported sitting on a nest for at least the last 5 days.

Happy Birding
