Mon 8highlightSpectacled Monarch
Nhulunbuy Town Lagoon
Early on Monday 8th July I observed an immature Spectacled Monarch in the monsoon vine thicket at Nhulunbuy town lagoon, approximate GPS -12.1771, 136.7842. At lunchtime today (9th) we relocated the bird in the same spot, loosely associating with Arafura Fantail and Little Shrikethrush and foraging for insects. It also displayed some territorial behaviour, chasing off a few smaller honeyeaters.
