Hi all
On Sunday, at Lake Delamere (c. 150 km south-west of Katherine, 
NT), I saw 250 Straw-necked Ibis, most of which were immature. 
While not in the 000's this seems a significant number in one group 
for the region. The lake was only at about 10% capacity, which is 
its limit now for the year as the rains have come to a close. The 
entire region down there seems very dry, so perhaps the birds were 
forced to the lake if it's the only significant water body around at 
the moment.
