Mon 29highlightCommon Diving Petrel, Wandering-type Albatross
Ocean, 9 miles off Sydney
A Common Diving Petrel flew alongside the vessel, then banked in front of the bow. A most unexpected sighting. Seen well by 3 observers. A Wandering-type Albatross had been seen well back from the stern about 15 minutes earlier. A few Fluttering Shearwaters, plus one Hutton's, as well as various small albatrosses.

Glossy Black Cockatoo
Lower Pappinbarra
At least 15 GBC settling to roost at 5:30pm. This is the most I have seen here since my observations started in 1980. There had been almost this number back in the early 1980s, but numbers had been dropping over the years. eBird checklist

highlightPainted honeyeater
Tennant Creek sewage treatment ponds
I have seen painted honeyeater here regularly over the past 4 months. There may be two birds as one morning I saw a bird on both sides of the ponds but never together.

Tue 23highlightGreater sand plover
Tennant Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant
A large plover in the company of black-fronted dotterels. Large size (compared to dotterals), largish black bill with greenish-yellow legs. Clear white underparts and sandy brown upper with grey-brown partial breast band left us in little doubt at what we were looking at. Sorry, no photo - too busy enjoying the bird to bother with a camera.
