Eurasian Magpie Port Hedland, Western Australia
The WA Sightings officer has asked me to pass on a report of Eurasian Magpie from Finucane Island at Port Hedland, on the part of the island directly opposite Port Hedland. Reported by John Robinson (with a photo), and has apparently been around for a few days. I would guess ship-assisted.

Black-fronted Dotterel Lake Brown Mountain (north side), Beliar Regional Park , Western Australia
Several dozen Black-fronted Dotterel sighted at the lake. Since the water level has receeded there is now access all the way to the lake's edge. Many other water species and raptors on site.
