Author's notes

Found perched on a dead reed stag on the bank of Kianga Creek close to it's mouth. (currently closed) Though I squibbed the taste test, I would expect the water to be brackish.

Hi Harvey, You might be interested to know that I was in amongst a bunch of Blue Riverdamsels clicking happily away when I noticed (thanks to your prompting) that one was a bit smaller. It was this Common Bluetail. Cheers!
