Hotter on the trail of Yellow Wagtail
Frustrating week chasing Eastern Yellow Wagtails (
) at Mungalla Station closed with slightly better results this morning.
Four birds found in two creek areas about a kilometre apart, including rather plain pair seen several times during the week, without ever getting close enough for acceptable images.
Even today only one bird - feeding avidly amid muddy water hyacinth - allowed the Troopy within 12-15 metres.
And this more strongly coloured newcomer flew off seconds after being sighted. Another target for next week.
