Thank you to all the people who replied to my email - the unanimous decision is that the bird was in fact a juvenile White-Winged Triller.

Thanks also to those of you who assured me that they couldn't see any other parts of my Facebook page. To be honest there isn't anything inappropriate there, but I'm not all that confident when putting private content on what is essentially a public space. Now I'm more assured that I can send such a link and not run the risk of revealing everything!

Hi Bozzas, Bill here

I was out at Banyule Flats the other day and took a couple of photos of ... well, you decide.

This was along the river between the car park and the Plenty River bridge. Associating with the bird in question were a number of Dusky Woodswallows, so my first thought was that it was a juvenile DW. My Pizzey and Knight doesn't have a drawing of juvenile DWs, so it wasn't until I showed a couple of people the photo, complete with a caption of juvenile Dusky Woodswallow that some doubt was raised.

Someone I highly respect tentatively suggested a Triller, which could fit well, but I'd like to get some more opinions.

I don't really feel good about putting my private Facebook page around, but here goes. Hopefully you'll only be able to see these photos, along with some appropriate Facebook ads...
