A single male non breeding brown songlark was observed beside the Weipa 
airstrip yesterday.  Due to the plumage pattern and general range of the 
species, I was very unsure of its identity and had to rush home and find 
cameras etc.  Some poor photos were taken (in diminishing light with 
thunderstorms looming), but Mike Carter has confirmed the id - Thanks Mike!   
The bird was still there this morning and airport security actually drove us to 
within a few metres of the bird to obtain excellent photos!  I was hoping for 
some rare vagrant, but BS is still a rare bird for here.
