First Record (Binna Burra, QLD) – A bird in a distant tree caught my eye. The mist made it hard to see but I was able to identify it as a Top Knot Pigeon. Getting closer was difficult but I managed a couple of OK shots.  30 mins later at a different spot and two landed in a lot better tree for me and I got some good shots.
