Sat 1Shining Bronze Cuckoo
Sackville, Hawkesbury River
Highlight of a pleasant winter day around Kurrajong, Wilberforce and Sackville was a pair of Shining Bronze Cuckoos (ssp plagosus) foraging together at the old Sackville Cemetery - presumably early returnees. Other species recorded included Pink-eared Ducks (in Sackville), Wonga Pigeon, Bar-shouldered Doves, Peaceful Doves, Common Bronzewings, Olive-backed Oriole, Rose Robin, Jacky Winters, Restless Flycatcher, Yellow-throated Scrubwren and White-bellied Sea Eagle.

Black-chinned Honeyeater, Pheasant Coucal and Rockwarbler
Chiltern Trail, Ingleside
A single Black-chinned Honeyeater was heard calling near the start of the trail (15m in) at around 11:00am today. A Pheasant Coucal was also heard calling and a Rockwarbler was seen extremely well (hopping around, about 2m away) on large boulders 20m off the track. 2 Glossy Black Cockatoos were feeding on Casuarina nuts at the start of the trail.

Goulds Lagoon Wildlife Sanctuary
[Moderator's Note - not really an unusual species, but quite an early arrival back - or overwintering bird]

Sat 1Brown Skua, Black browed Albatross
Inner Portland Harbour
Both birds followed a fishing vessel into harbour around midday and in addition to seeing an albatross as close to shore as we have ever seen we then were amazed to see the Skua land in the middle of the road that leads to the Breakwater
