This is another possible Queensland record in the same greater region as the 
sightings last July/August when they were seen 150 km NNW of Mount Isa and at 
Kingfisher Camp on Bowthorn Station.
This sighting is on the Georgina River, near a semi permanent waterhole. Access 
here is easy, so for anyone passing, it may be worth investigating.
