Hunt for Yellow Wagtail leads to gold



Set out once, twice and thrice more for Yellow Wagtail at Mungalla Station and come home with gold - mostly Golden-headed Cisticola (Cisticola exilis).


And Australasian Pipit (Anthus novaeseelandiae) shares much the same habitat beside Palm Creek.

Where - less often since the first thunderstorm of the Wet season - the target Eastern Yellow Wagtail (Motacilla tschutschensis) does still show up, but never close enough.
