Hi all

Whilst on the topic of Yellow Wagtail I thought id point out that this is the worst season for Yellow Wagtails in Broome that I can remember.

I think 8 was the record in October.
October is usually our best month for viewing with often 50-80 at the poo ponds.

In jan however it is not that uncommon to see over 100 going to Roost in the evenings at the Crab Creek Mangroves.

There has not been a Yellow Wagtial seen in Broome since a brief view of a single in late Jan. March and April is usually when they start to form flocks at the poo ponds ready for migration north and this is usually in mid May. They are a late returning migrant atleast from Broome

Not sure why this is hopefully they will return next season.

Must go down to the port and see what rare birds will turn up in the cyclone

Cheers ADY
