Hi all,

The (Eastern) Yellow Wagtail "first reported" on the 22nd June is still being 
seen on Hexham Swamp. I have seen it a few times myself, most recently on 
Tuesday afternoon, but it is a particularly difficult bird to photograph. A 
local birder, Max Blanch has managed the only 2 shots of it, one of which I 
posted to Birdline NSW today

There are also 4 Sharp-tailed Sandpipers and 2 Marsh Sandpipers at the site, 
along with ~20 Curlew Sands, 5 Greenshank and a few Red-necked Stint. If you do 
visit the Birdline page, check out the crakes and rails also seen and 
photographed there (the image in the post, taken by Chris Herbert, shows a 
Lewin's Rail, Spotted and Spotless Crakes feeding together).
