Hi Kirri,

It sounds like you are having a great time around Darwin... it's a wonderful 
region isn't it!!

I'm very interested (as I'm sure plenty of others are on here) in your sighting 
today of an Oriental Reed Warbler at Fogg Dam. I do know that Luke Patterson 
has recorded the species there very recently, but I'm very curious as to what 
made you think that your sighting today wasn't of the very commonly occuring 
Aust Reed Warbler... 
It would be nice to hear a little more from you about this.... 
Thanks in advance.

Cheers for now,

Martin Cachard
