Hi all,

Just a quick update: This afternoon there was still one Eastern Yellow Wagtail 
at Wagtail Way, Ash Island, Newcastle/Hexham, NSW. Nearby there was an 
Australasian Pipit checking out its northern relative. Also of note were three 
White-fronted Chats (male, female and juvenile). Finally, there was one briefly 
and distantly singing Mangrove Gerygone near the parking lot at the entrance.



P.S. This makes three Motacilla species in just over a week for me: Grey 
Wagtail, White Wagtail (the former in, the latter above my parents' backyard in 
Mannheim, Germany) and now Eastern Yellow Wagtail in NSW.

P.P.S. Two more binocularless side effects of my business trip to Germany were 
two flocks of migrating Common Cranes and a female Eagle-Owl (all during a 10 
minute walk in the dark between my conference venue and my hotel in Marburg,
