Good evening everyone

                                             I have just returned from
Darwin where I spent 5 days looking for White-throated Grasswren, alas
without success and not at Gunlom. I was able to photograph two new species
being Chestnut-quilled Rock Pigeon and Great-billed Heron, the latter doing
an extraordinary display in which it fluffs up its feathers and throws its
head up like an Australian Bittern and in a front on shot of a Male you
would think it is some type of Bittern, I also was lucky to photograph a
Merten's Water Monitor with a Redclaw in its mouth
