Hi all
Darwin turned on some pretty good birds today. Started the morning with 4 
Chestnut Rails at Buffalo Creek (all four in view at the same time, 2 on each 
side of the creek). Then to the Leanyer Sewage Works, where there was 
Little Ringed Plover, 2 Yellow Wagtails (one in spectacular yellow plumage), 
a few Oriental Plovers, Little Curlews, White-winged Black Terns, Black-
necked Storks and lots of the normal ducks and things. In the afternoon, a 
quick visit back to the sewage works and a Long-toed Stint was feeding at 
the side of the track. It came right past my car within a few metres. Very 
Happy Birding
