Hi twitchers

The Blue-rock Thrush appears at the Kitchen Rock headland, 15 min walk (6
min if running as I did) from the southern end of the Nusa NP. The timing is
important: go there when first light appears until 6 am sharp and then after
4.30 pm to sunset. The bird appeared on a dead tree on the far end of the
headland just before it drops off into the sea. During the day it disappears
into the woods or shoreline to feed. I missed the bird on Saturday, because
I arrived 6.10 am which was 10 min too late. Fortunally, I returned on
Sunday afternoon 5.12 pm and together with 7 others we had maga views of the
immature (subadult) bird in beatiful sunlight. Perfect to photography It is
very aggressive chasing other birds and active feeding.
