Hello Birders

Went to the Central coast last Sunday, 20th July.

Best bird seen was an Arctic Tern in full breeding plumage (bird had   
complete red bill and short legs and black cap aswell as translucent   
primary feathers) at Soldiers Point east of Toukley. (this is about one   
and a half-hours drive north of Sydney).

Also the same day, I visited Malina Rd at Matcham which is just east of   
Gosford and one hours drive north of Sydney.At this location, there were   
many Regent Bowerbirds (3 adult males and several brown birds), Satin   
Bowerbirds, Figbirds, Green-winged (3 birds atleast) and White-headed   
Pigeons (50 plus), Brown Cuckoo Dove's and Wonga Pigeons.All these Birds   
were feeding on Privet which comes in fruit at this time of the year.This   
is a fairly reliable spot for all these species at this time of the year.

Directions to this area are as follows:

>From the Entrance Rd, turn left onto Matcham Rd then take the next left   
onto Malina Rd till the end where you will see all the Privit.

Happy Biding
