George Swann advises that the Broome Red-throated Pipit Anthus cervinus was today joined by a Green-headed Wagtail Motacilla taivana. The latter is one of the Yellow Wagtail splits adopted by the new Christidis & Boles Australian Checklist. This bird is surrounded by Eastern Yellow Wagtails M. tschutschensis, the common form in Australia, so good comparisons are available. It also has been photographed.
Apparently the pipit 'comes and goes'.
