Hi all
I found a first year Black-headed Gull at the wharf area in Darwin this 
evening. This is a very different bird from the one in adult winter plumage 
I saw a week ago. A few visiting birdwatchers were lucky enough to be 
around and see the bird this evening. I visited the area the day after seeing 
the adult last week but couldn't find it, and someone else also looked in the 
interim without luck. Hopefully this one will stay around.
The Northern Pintail seems to be definitely gone from the Darwin area, 
though could be tucked away somewhere. I haven't seen it since Christmas 
The White Wagtail is still around, though not seen on every visit to the 
sewage works.
At least one Little Ringed Plover and several Barn Swallows are also around.
Otherwise, all is quiet on the birding front.

Happy birding
