Thomson Bay? Pinky's? Baghdad Lake?

We wish this superb photo had more accompanying info.

Our sources thought we would be delighted with a pic of a Rotto bird - and we yield to none in our joy at a sharp image of a juvenile Banded Lapwing (aka Vanellus tricolor).

It was papped a couple of weeks ago, but the exact location is not revealed.

This is a juvenile, of course.

Even though we are marooned in a western suburb, we can shut our eyes and pretend to hear "er-chill-chaar-char".
