Eastern Yellow Wagtail (2) Nth East Corner near house, thanks to reports from Kirri and Laurie. spent 3 hours from 3PM and they didnt turn up until 6PM. sat on road and then disturbed to bank in front of house. Stayed for 3 minutes tolerating swooping by woodswallows until flying off to North west mangroves over fence. Nice colour on both.

Sun 7 Apr Yellow Wagtail Leanyer Sewage Works, Darwin
A Yellow Wagtail was sighted today/ Sunday at 8:30am on the far side of the ponds standing on the bitumen road bordering the fence, not far down from the house on the corner of the property. Observed for 2 minutes. Images were captured, just haven't loaded my images to the computer yet, but thought i should share what i saw ASAP. Good to know they're still hanging around. It took to the sky and flew and bounced along calling out as it went.
