Birdline Northern Territory

Published sightings for the week ending 25 Sep 2011.

Wed 21 Sep Australian Wood Duck, Great Crested Grebe, Great Cormorant Longreach Waterhole, Elliot
Australian Wood Duck (2) easily seen on bank with other waders. Flushed away when trying to get a photo, I believe they are on the edge of their range? Great Crested Grebe (2) Floating mid lagoon, with a hardhead or 2. Appear to be in breeding plumage. Very comfortable with heads tucked low, male extended once. Tried for long distance photo, but I fear that heavy cropping will be low quality. Great Cormorant (6) 1 flying across water followed by small flock of 5
