Wed 25possible Kamchatka Leaf (Phylloscopus) Warbler
Werri Beach, Gerringong
Received an email forwarded from a British birder who reported a Kamchatka Warbler at the above site. The information provided reads: "Had it calling and sounded spot on the recording. The bird was in the scrub/small trees north of fish and chip shop". This sighting is being posted in the hope that someone can follow it up. Any Phylloscopus Warbler in that location would be a mega.

Refinery Spit, Nhulunbuy, NT
Following up on Karen Rose and Chris Wiley's observations of the Black-headed Gull. Bird still present and relatively relaxed and approachable, after Northern onslaught of bad weather. First seen on wharf (South eastern side of spit) and then on beach a short time after. Tide was relatively high and it was about 5:30PM

The sandpiper is still at the location which has been widely reported associating with Red-capped Plovers and Red-necked Stints. It happily stayed around for the two hours I was there.

highlightBlack Petrel, Buller's Shearwater, Antipodean Albatross
Pelagic off Port Stephens (BirdLife Photography Group outing)
A single Black Petrel and 2 Buller's Shearwaters were the highlights of a BirdLife Australia Photography Group pelagic organised by the Hunter Bird Observers Club today off Port Stephens. Also of note was an adult Antipodean Albatross (Gibson's) and 2 individual adult Shy-type Albatrosses. There were also 2 'getaway' sightings; one a likely 'Cookilaria', the other almost certainly a Long-tailed Jaeger. For the 2nd Port Stephens pelagic running, there were no storm-petrels seen.

highlightMottled Petrel
Booderee National Park - Bherwerre Beach
One found beachwashed. Attached is a poor quality image from my phone but visible are the diagnostic combination of characters: white throat, white undertail, grey belly patch; white underwing with prominent black diagonal bar. Also along the beach were 100+ low flying White-throated Needletails hawking insects just above the sand or adjacent dunes.
