Mon 26Koel and White-throated Gerygone
Both species heard today for first time this season. As always we seem to get the later, lazy migrants here. Still waiting for last Dollarbird to arrive in NSW.

Black-faced Monarch
Georges River National Park--Yeramba Lagoon
Two birds seen playing with each another. It would seem as this is the first reported sighting for this area or any other area surrounding it. [Moderator Comment: Black-faced Monarchs are regular spring-summer migrants to forests throughout eastern NSW. These birds will be returning migrants. ~AR]

Sun 25Olive-backed Oriole & Caspian Tern
Eastlakes golf course
An Olive-backed Oriole was not a popular visitor with the resident Red Wattlebirds near the golf cart shed. Caspian Tern flyover was also noteworthy and 6 Latham's Snipe together on the 'new' island. The Oriole was my first record here.

Australian Pratincole
Hexham Swamp Nature Reserve--Old Pipeline Track
The pratincole is still present in the same area as reported previously. After searching for most of the day, finally observed at 5.30pm in the samphire near the end of the fenceline about 100m from the road. Also nice to see a Horsfield's Bronze-Cuckoo at the start, and a Dollarbird at the end of the track.
