Sun 29highlightGlossy Black Cockatoo
Racecourse Beach, Ulladulla
43 Glossies flew over the Princess Hwy just west of Racecourse beach app 6 PM this evening. This is the most seen in this area for yonks although birds in numbers of 3-4 are regularly being seen feeding in the area both in the morning and evening as autumn approaches. The Arctic Jaegers are still being seen sporadically off Warden Head when the bait fish are closer inshore bringing hoardes of Silver Gulls, W-t Shearwaters to feed

Pink-eared Duck

Sat 28Powerful Owl
Murray St Bateau Bay
A male Powerful Owl was calling strongly and persistently at this site at 3.15 am. This follows on from when the same bird (?) was calling strongly at 10.15 pm on the evening of 10 March 2015 and was kept under observation in a tree in my front yard for 15 minutes. At that time another Powerful Owl was heard calling some distance away. These are the first Powerful Owls at this site for two years.

NO South Island Pied Oystercatcher
Chowder Bay
No signs of the SIPO at Chowder Head at low tide this morning. When I checked the tide levels, I found that the low tide level last Sunday (when I saw the bird feeding on exposed rocks) was at .2 meters. Today low tide was at .6 meters, which means the rocks visible last Sunday were under water today. The next tide coming below .5 meters will be on the 15th of April. Not sure it this is really relevant, but I think it is likely. There was also significantly more activity in the harbour today compared to last week.

highlightCrescent Honeyeater
Royal National Park - McKell Avenue
Site as described my Marc on Thursday - at least 2 (probably more) Crescent Honeyeaters heard and observed. Difficulty arose as they were very cryptic (more so than usual), keeping surprisingly low in dense shrubs, calling infrequently.

Sun 22highlightBlack-tailed Godwit,
Lord Howe Island Airport
1 Black-tailed Godwit observed feeding with Bar-tails. This is a rare sighting for Lord Howe. Only 1 Song Thrush seen once - obviously becoming scarcer. However, Buff banded Rail and Lord Howe Island Woodhen numbers have exploded since last visit in 1995 presumably reflecting the removal of cats from the island.

Sat 28highlightLong-toed Stint
Avalon Beach
Glorious Long-toed Stint in breeding plumage entertained us this morning along the side of the road leading to the beach shacks. Grey-tailed Tattler feeding along shore east of shacks, Red Knot in pond with Curlew Sandpipers and 3 Double-banded Plovers near parked cars. Many other species in pre-migration plumage. A wonderful location at the moment.
