During November we were living in Yuendumu Community up the Tanami Road. I 
checked the sewage ponds daily and on about the 10th a small wader turned up. I 
thought it was a Long-toed Stint but sent photographs of it away for 
confirmation. It was indeed a Long-toed Stint and was still there on the 18th 
when we left. We are now living at Nyirripi Community (about an hour west of 
Newhaven Sanctuary) and yesterday 3 Oriental Plovers turned up at our small 
sewage ponds and are still there today. Also around are Orange Chat, 2 
Peregrines watching the birds drinking at the ponds, 2 Black-tailed Native-hens 
stayed 2 days but now gone 1 Whiskered Tern in full breeding plumage and the 
usual arid land honeyeaters Black, Pied, Grey-headed and Spiny-cheeked.  On the 
ponds themselves are 11 Grey Teal 5 Pink-eared Ducks 1 Australasian and 2 
Hoary-headed Grebes and round the edges Red-kneed and Black-fronted Dotterels
