Sat 20Spotted Harrier
Nimbin Rd at Goolmangar
At about 2pm, I noticed a Spotted Harrier gliding above the ridge to the east of Nimbin Rd near Goolmangar general store, and I watched it cross low above the road and over to the wetlands, before being driven away by a crow. Adult bird. An exciting sighting for me in the Lismore Shire. eBird checklist

Fri 19highlightWhite-browed Woodswallow, Regent Honeyeater
Werekata State Conservation Area at Sawpit Rd entrance
We visited the site from Sydney to look for the Regent Honeyeaters which have been reported there for the past four or five weeks. I was very surprised to find a White-browed Woodswallow amongst the Regents - surely a very unusual winter record for the Hunter region? The Regents were showing well on both sides of the main road - I estimated about 10 to 12 individuals, but they are always difficult to tally accurately. (Moderator's Note: A remarkable record. There are no previous winter [Jun/Jul] reports of White-browed Woodswallows in the Hunter Region or surrounds and it is assumed that this bird was blown in during the recent westerlies, though it's arrival on Friday pre-dated the most severe winds yesterday. The Regents have now been present this site for 7 weeks too. MR)

Fri 12highlightBush Stone-curlew
Girilambone
Sighting of multiple birds in a area where I thought they would not exist. (Moderator's Note: There are very few current records for Bush Stone-curlews in Mid Western and western NSW, so is a surprise to know that there are some at Girilambone. I have not been able to determine where these birds were actually sighted but it is of interest to note that way back on 23/8/1976 I saw a pair of BTK mid way along the Hermidale-Girilambone Rd, not far from Wilga Downs HSD.
