   Tue 30 Sep Little Curlew Alice Springs Waste Stabilisation Ponds
   Following up on a report of an unidentified wader which seemed to fit
   the description of a Little Curlew, Anthony Molyneux and I were able to
   positively identify the bird as a Little Curlew. The lone bird was
   hanging on or near the central grassed area.
