   Birdline North Queensland

   Published sightings for the week ending 16 Nov 2014.

   Fri 14 Nov Grey Wagtail Birthday Creek Falls - Paluma Range National
   One individual, non-breeding plumage, observed hopping upstream from
   the falls at approx. 10am. Bird was flighty and flew to low branches
   when initially approached, then continued upstream, maintaing a
   significant distance from us. One distant and heavily cropped
   photograph attached here to support the record. I note there is one
   previous record from the same location from 1993.

   Yellow Wagtail Mungalla Station--Forrest Beach, Queensland
   Very plain white and grey Wagtail beside Palm Creek pool near old
   stockyards today. Flighty. Lost bird after low flight across extensive
   wetlands. My first sighting of species this season.

   Sun 9 Nov Pectoral Sandpiper Warri Park - Port Douglas
   Seen well in the wide section of the drain at the southern end of the
   lake just before it passes under the road - busy poking around in the
   mud by 2 observers at 6.15am. Bill yellowish at the base and looked
   longer than a Sharp-tailed Sandpiper bill, markings on breast abruptly
   cut off, single bird not in company of others.
