Martin and Keith,

I think it was the year before last that I saw at Millaa Millaa Falls car park a bird with the face like Keith's first picture and wings like the fifth. That is the face mask was more extensive than usual, extending almost to the eye and up the forehead, and the black on the wings included not only the primaries but at least some secondaries, and the outer great coverts, alula and median coverts. I think that the outer lesser coverts were black also but do not have a clear memory of that. Attempts to photograph the bird were unsuccessful. When I returned the next day without customers I could not relocate the bird.
