In addition to the Black-browed and Yellow-nosed albatrosses, thousands 
of Fluttering Shearwaters, the occasional Skua, the fairy prions, the 
Peregrine Falcons, and the abundant gannets (not to mention all the gulls 
and terns) there was a reef egret on the rocks at the south end 
of Maroubra Beach on Friday. 
I also saw, very distantly, some all dark shearwater-type birds which we 
larger than the Flutterings, but have no idea what they would be. 
Providence petrels?

Also went to Capertee on the 5th. no regent honeyeaters but there is 
flower starting to come out in the Gardens of Stone national park, so 
perhaps they will be turning up there soon.
Highlights of my day there were several groups of babblers, and some 
white-backed swallows, and of course all the finches. No plum-headeds though.
Lowlight was my cracked windshield from the cars that speedily drive down 
the road there.

good birding,

Katie Bertsche
