Violet Creek, Carnarvon
Bird no recognised when photo taken but on reviewing on screen it was pretty obvious it wasn't the White-faced Heron I thought it was. Went back later that day hoping to find it again but no show. Seen and photographed again today, 19th Nov. Appears to be a sub-adult as plumage characteristics are not as full adult and certainly not a juvenile. This bird is residing in saline/mangrove habitat, not the norm for a freshwater specialist.

Long-toed Stint
Katherine Wastewater Treatment Plant, Northern Territory
Another Katherine Ponds First and an uncommon Top End NT observation. This bird was with a Red-necked Stint and about 10 Sharp-tailed SP's, continuing an outstanding year for the KP's. More pics at https://ebird.org/australia/view/checklist/S50015665 eBird checklist
