Hi all
I was rather surprised to see a White-faced Heron at a nest 
containing 3 young high up atop an electricity pylon this morning. 
The nest was about 10km south of Adelaide River along the Stuart 
Hwy (making it about 125 km south of Darwin). Seems an 
unexpected site for a nest, not to mention the fact that breeding by 
this species in the Top End is very rarely reported anyway.

Happy Birding
PS There are still reports of our Black-headed Gull, though
