Last Sunday Annie & I drove to Norah Head on the Central Coast of NSW.  We
had morning tea in Bush Street Park and in the remnant coastal forest we saw
Spangled Drongo and Striped Honeyeater.  From the lighthouse we hardly saw
any good birds.  Several flocks of Fluttering Shearwaters were heading
south.  For lunch we set up around the corner at Soldiers Point.  We
overlooked a rock platform which dogs couldn't get to and saw Double-banded
Plover, White-fronted Tern, Sooty and Pied Oystercatchers and the highlight
was a Common Diving Petrel flying south past the point.

During last week I was working at Macmasters Beach (Central Coast) at a
palace overlooking the beach and a male Regent Bowerbird flew along the
trees below.  What a nice place I thought to myself!
