One non breeding Yellow Wagtail at the Katherine sewerage ponds this
afternoon,  seen briefly and photographed from a distance in the rain, and
then lost as the sky really opened up. The only previous record I can find
of a Yellow Wag in Katherine was by  Mike Reed in 1999 at the same site.
The  lone Black Tailed Native Hen first seen at the ponds a couple of weeks
ago  is still present, but most of the waders have dispersed - we have at
last had our first real rain for the season over the weekend and  there's
now plenty of other water about. I do wonder however how many of the waders
that arrive in Katherine  end up feeding the very large number of freshwater
crocodiles that lurk near the edges of the ponds.
