Croker Island birds

We are living on Croker Island at the moment. The famous floodplain between the airstrip and community is largely dry and has plenty of Little Curlews and Australian Pratincoles. Near some remnant wet areas, were two Buff-banded Rail, 9 Marsh Sandpipers neither of which along with Little Curlew, have been recorded on Croker Is before. Other new birds for Croker Island I have seen are Australasian Grebe and Swinhoe’s Snipe at the sewage ponds and Royal Spoonbills, a Wedge-tailed Eagle and Pacific Baza. Koels are calling and there are a few Dollarbirds.
