   Wed 5 Nov Eastern Yellow Wagtail (tschutschensis) Papunya
   Noticed smallish bird on water's edge at Papunya Sewage Ponds. Has
   similar flight jizz to Grey Wagtail seen in Alice Springs WTP last
   year. Took photos. Checked photos with others more knowledgeable in
   this area. Stated too tall in legs and tail too short for Grey Wagtail,
   ID as Eastern Yellow Wagtail ssp. tschutschensis.
