highlightGreen Pygmy-geese
Atkinson's Dam
Probable pair of Green PG at drain (-27.414173, 152.427990) Definitely Pygmy-geese but Swedish birder Mikhail had good view of heads and categorically ruled out Cotton. My views were not so good but can confirm that they were PG from wing-pattern.

Leach Lagoon
Native Hen uncommonly seen in Top End, continuing incursions of Dusky Moorhen and Freckled Duck into the Top End over 2017 also seen was 1 Oriental Pratincole. Photographs (ID Q) are available. Leach's Lagoon is a large area of swamp which has little surveying conducted on it. Its extensive plains offer numerous small waterholes, drainages and a large swamp as well as surrounding woodland.
