I observed a SWD a fair way up the Embley River, Weipa today sitting on a log 
on the river bank.  This is the first time I have observed this species 
elsewhere to the sewage plant in town.  It was also unusual in that this is the 
forst time I have seen one on its own.  The river is up quie a lot with recent 
heavy rain.  The bird flew a few hundred metres upstream when approached, 
eventually disappearing into thick vegetation.
