Wed 28megamegaCrested Honey Buzzard (2)
Lake Joondalup, Western Australia
A second Crested Honey Buzzard, an adult male, was seen today at 10.30am along with the immature male bird originally found by Jon Anderson on 5 Jan and again 25 Jan (a single bird was subsequently seen 26 and 27 Jan by a number of birders). The immature male flew down the centre of the lake in display flight. It was followed by the adult male which perched briefly at the southern end, before the two birds circled together northwards along the eastern edge of the lake.

highlightLittle Shearwater
Booderee National Park--Bherwerre Beach
One washed up in the tideline along with a number of Fluttering, Wedge-tailed & Short-tailed Shearwaters after several days of onshore weather. Several Streaked Shearwaters seen close in off nearby Cape St George. The Little Shearwater was identified by its small size compared to the Fluttering Shearwater and its blue legs. Submission will be prepared for NSWORAC and photos of the carcase will be provided.

Wed 28highlight(Possible) Grey Falcon (juvenile)
Viewbank
Obviously requires follow-up before acceptance so posting this as an alert. Watched for 10-15 minutes around 7pm over pastures at the high point of the Plenty River Trail. Flying like falcon, similar size to Little Corellas, rapid gliding and soaring downslope towards Plenty and Yarra Rivers and back to the top - upswept wings when soaring noted. Clearly grey upper wings and body. Underside pale with a few dark grey longitudinal streaks and small patch on underwing coverts at base of primaries, face markings also dark, matching juvenile. Wings not as pointed as Peregrine or Black. Haven't seen a Grey in Vic before, a few in SA. (Moderator's note: Obviously this report is exceptional and would require a follow up sighting for confirmation, but the report is posted to encourage a follow up)
