Hi All,

Was able to spare an hour or so this morning to check out Chinamans Creek, the 
well known site SW of Katherine on the Victoria Highway. 

There is still a bit much water around for the birds to be concentrated around 
waterholes like Chinamans Creek, but there was still a few things around. The 
highlight was a group of about 16 Hooded Parrots, mostly females and young 
males, with 3 mature males. Other birds about included Northern Fantail, 
Restless (Paperbark) and Leaden Flycatchers, Rufous-throated Honeyeaters, 
Red-winged Parrot and a distant Cockatiel. 

Not a lot of birds, but otherwise a very pleasant time on a beautiful dry 
season morning.

Good birding!
