At the usual southern end, western bank. I'm near enough to certain it is Long-toed, based on the following.
- distinct unbroken breast band;
- dark bar across distinctly scallop-patterned brown, not grey, wings (and back); - bill appeared tapered and sharp, though the bulbous tip of the Red-necked isn't necessarily obvious. On the other hand legs were dark (but it was pottering in black mud) and no sign of a pale base to bill (same comment though).

There are others among you whose word I'd take above mine, so I look forward to other comments.

Also a Swamp Harrier, but no sign of a Turquoise Parrot.
