Little Egret, Great Crested Grebe
Penrith Regatta Center
A Little Egret was hunting on the southernmost edge of the racing lake, near the security station end in the company of a breeding Royal Spoonbill. About 30 meters beyond, there were two adult Great Crested Grebes diving, looking for food. I've never seen the grebes in this close and on this very lake. They tend to be on the less people inhabited water bodies.

highlightBrush Bronzewing, Black Bittern
Deep Creek Reserve, Narrabeen
On this cool and rainy day, a Brush Bronzewing was on the pipeline track around midday. I haven't seen Brush Bronzewings at Deep Creek for years; since the area around the pipeline track was weeded, and I'd thought they'd left the area. Good to know there's still at least one around. I wonder if others have seen any more recently? Also saw a Black Bittern which was nice :) . A nice pair of Azure Kingfishers near the dog park, and a vocal female Lyrebird.

Wed 27Wandering Albatross and thousands of Fluttering-type Shearwaters
North Head, Sydney
One Wandering Albatross, 6 Shy & ~15 Black-browed Albatross plus many thousands of Fluttering-type Shearwaters [Moderator's note (NH): According to Ivan's description they were likely Fluttering Shearwaters. However, due to the current preponderance of Hutton's Shearwaters in the area, I was hesitant regarding the identification on species level.]

Grey-Tailed Tattler (possible)
Altona Coastal Park
Not 100% sure about my identification- bird was partially hidden behind rocks and quite far away. Bird was located along Racecourse Road, to the left of the 'bridge' above the Kororoit Creek. Would love to hear about any other possible IDs for this bird.

highlightAustralasian Bittern
Lark Street, Altona
In flight above my backyard, heading south then east. I am very near to Truganina Swamp which is likely where it came from and looks like it was heading towards Kororoit Creek.

Fri 29Glossy Ibis
Western Treatment Plant (Werribee)
Single bird flying west over Borrow Pit on a very foggy morning. Large numbers of Black-shouldered Kites, two Brolgas in sea east of Murtcain Outlet. Brown Quail at Beach Rd Gate. Several reports of Blue-wings in Western Lagoons but they hid from us.
