spent a most enjoyable hour and a half sitting at kunoth bore on Tanami road, 
next to Hamiton downs youth camp turn off.  the highlight was a single male 
flock pigeon, which flew in over the dam and then landed for a drink.  Stayed 
about five minutes, went down to the water, had a drink  and then was off on 
pointed wings.

There would have been fifty plus common bronzewings and over 30 Bourke's 
parrots, around 25 Diamond Doves, 15 zebra finch in the time that we were 
there.  Other birds of interest were pallid cuckoo, mulga parrots and Pt  
Lincoln parrots.

Also, the full moon coming up  behind the bloodwood and two dingos trotting 
behind the dam were special.
