Great looks a Ruff at Lake Tinaroo, Yungaburra, FNQ this afternoon, at the end 
of Harper Road on the mudbank opposite and to the right, actually an aus-tick 
for me though I saw one in PNG years ago. Then 10 Red-rumped Swallows on power 
lines by the motel at Tinaburra boat ramp, will post photos to Birdforum and 
ABID when we get the power back here (after a huge fig fell down this morning 
and took out the lines) Be good to try and get which subspecies these Red-rumps 
belong to, they are quite well-streaked dark on the chest, unstreaked on the 
belly,  have quite pale but not whitish underwing coverts, and lack a red 
collar; call the usual "sweik" note of many Red-rumped taxa.
Thanks to Alan Gillanaders for the news and coming with us this afternoon, but 
no sign of the putative LRP, just lots of Black-fronted Dots and a couple of 
Phil Gregory
