Mon 1 Jul Yellow-billed Spoonbill private billabong, Point Stuart Rd
billabong had some water in it in July, even after a very poor wet season. We saw birds here that we didn't see anywhere else in Kakadu or Mary River NPs - there must be some interesting conditions at this site. Also a possible Sparrowhawk seen, but not 100% sure of id. Yellow-billed Spoonbill (1) feeding with Royal Spoonbills. Pics taken - sorry for poor quality (we were viewing from road so a fair way off)

Mon 1 Jul Australian Bustard Point Stuart Wilderness Lodge
Australian Bustard (1) male bird flew in to buffalo paddock. Walked and flew to small dam on south boundary. Pics taken. Owners say there are often plenty around on neighbouring private properties.
