Sun 16Little Friarbird
One Tree Reach Wetland (Sydney record)
Saw at least 2 Little Friarbirds (amongst the large number of Noisy Friarbirds foraging in the flowering Swamp Mahogany beside the wetland at Laughtondale beside Singleton Rd. The Noisy Friarbirds were being chased by the Noisy Miners and the Noisy Friarbirds were chasing away the smaller honeyeaters as well as each other. The Little Friarbirds appeared to be immature birds with yellow throat patches. This was the first time I have seen the Little Friarbirds in the Sydney region.

Swift Parrot
Wisemans Ferry Golf Course
Lemon-scented Gums were in good flower within the golf course. At least 3 Swift Parrots (possibly more seen) foraging in these gums but they were being chased away by the Noisy Miners.

Cattle Egret
Lake Cargelligo Old Golf Course
A single bird not in breeding plumage seen feeding among cattle as I drove through Lake Cargelligo today. Very rare to see one of these birds around the Lachlan Shire

Spotted for third time hunting in area over vacant farmland, being hounded by ravens and lapwings. Also spotted 29/4 in same location, and first sighting maybe two weeks prior to that passing through same location. Most uncommon for the area - never seen one here before.
