I have seen painted honeyeater here regularly over the past 4 months. There may be two birds as one morning I saw a bird on both sides of the ponds but never together.

Tue 23Greater sand plover
Tennant Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant
A large plover in the company of black-fronted dotterels. Large size (compared to dotterals), largish black bill with greenish-yellow legs. Clear white underparts and sandy brown upper with grey-brown partial breast band left us in little doubt at what we were looking at. Sorry, no photo - too busy enjoying the bird to bother with a camera.
