Painted Button Quail
Mt Ainslie Nature Reserve--Campbell Park
Pair of Button Quail flushed from longer grass just north of the "horse gate" at approx 8am. Large number of Buff-rumped Thornbills feeding young, and evidence of breeding with large juveniles for several other species incl Dusky Woodswallow, White-winged Triller, Striated Pardalote and White-winged Chough. Single Horsfields Bronze Cuckoo seen. (Appreciate most of these are expected but evidence of what seems to have been a good breeding season.)

Pacific Baza
Shoplands Rd Annangrove
Four Pacific Baza circling lazily over my house mid-afternoon, only about 15m up. Two adults and two juveniles in the very vocal group, lots of 'ee-chews' between them. The group slowly drifted west and out of sight. Single adult seen this morning as well. My first siting of the species here in Annangrove since 2002

Port Stephens pelagic
Highlights of a generally quiet day off Port Stephens were 2 Red-tailed Tropicbirds (a first for Port Stephens pelagics) and 3 Gould's Petrels. The tropicbirds were very high in the sky so views were not great. Photo by Allan Richardson.

Australian While Ibis
Near Port Wakefield
I counted 227 in a paddock, the most I have seen in this area. In the 1980s there were very few here, in numbers less than 10. Numbers have increased steadily since.
