Sooty calling a lot tonight up gully on private property with mixed remnant large brush box, riparian, mature camphor and rainforest re growth on hillside. Quite a wonderful revelation for this site which is only 2 miles from the Pacific Motorway

Sun 26White-headed Pigeon, Brown Cuckoo-dove, Wedge-tailed Eagle - all breeding
Kurrajong Hills
All breeding records. Pair of Brown Cuckoo-doves feeding 2 juveniles at our backyard feeder. Pair of White-headed Pigeons with 2 dark juvs on Mill Rd - there are several White-headeds in the area at present. Pigeon spp breeding may be in response to the heavy privet fruiting season now finishing. Pair of Wedge-tailed Eagles with a small pale 3rd bird which has not been seen with them before, appeared to be begging mid-air. Have not seen this resident pair with young for the past 2 years. Also seen a fine large Koala in Grey Gums on Hermitage Rd at the entrance to The Islands - my first local record in about 5 years. eBird checklist

Douglas Apsley National Park Seymour 10' Cell
While beach walking we came across a lone penguin standing around the high tide mark. As we had been observing Little Penguins the night before I noticed this bird was larger and had the yellow eyebrow markings.
