Mon 30Streaked and Buller's Shearwaters, Antipodean and Shy Albatrosses
Port Stephens pelagic
Few of the 20 species seen outside of the heads on the Port Stephens pelagic today were in deep water, with most of the more 'interesting' birds seen on the way out or way back in. These included Streaked and Buller's Shearwaters (amongst 7 spp. of shearwaters), a banded Antipodean (Gibson's) Albatross and a Shy-type Albatross that looks good for a steadi. There were a few Grey-faced and Solander's Petrels at the shelf as well as the first Port Stephens storm-petrels (Wilson's and White-faced) since November 2014, 5 trips ago! Quite a few first year Australasian Gannets about too.

Glossy Black Cockatoo, Musk Lorikeet
Berowra Valley Regional Park - Hornsby Hts
1 Pair of Glossies arrived on the afternoon of the 28th. Third year running now, back to their large Angophora nesting tree, hopefully we see chicks this year. Though the Sulpher-crested cockatoos are not making it easy for them to resettle. Also a substantial flock of Musk Lorikeet feeding in the flowering red gums on Rofe Crs over the past 2 weeks. A first for me!!

Eastlakes golf course
2 Brown Honeyeaters back again near track that separates the two golf courses feeding on flowering paperbarks. A Sacred Kingfisher and 6 Latham's Snipe also present, the latter I'm sure won't be around for much longer.

Sat 28Buller's Albatross and Yellow-nosed Albatross
SOSSA Wollongong pelagic
2 Buller's Albatross and an Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross were the highlights of the March pelagic. One of the Buller's was a 3rd year bird based initially on the incompletely developed bill pattern and paler grey head and confirmed based on the primary moult pattern. Also seen were good numbers of Pomarine Jaegers, 1 Long-tailed Jaeger, Grey-faced Petrel, Black-browed, Shy and Campbell Island Albatross, Short-tailed Shearwaters and 1 Sooty Shearwater.
