Just to prove that not ALL the seabirds are flying around off Sydney at the moment, I took my daughter for a drive down to Pt Addis yesterday. The real reason for the trip was to play in the great playground at Torquay, but as she fell asleep on the way I seized the chance to do some seawatching. Pt Addis is about 10K west of Torquay.|
Sunny and cool, very little wind, negligible swell.
Yellow-nosed Albatross - 1 bird flying
Black-browed Albatross - 1 on water
Other albatross (c.5) on water but too distant for ID
Little Black Cormorant (surprising - usually see Greats here) - 1
Australasian Gannet - 3
White-faced heron - 1
Pacific Gull - 2
Silver Gull - < 20
Plus a few land birds in the car park.
This is great place to visit because of easy access (clear views from car park) and spectacular coastline. Sometimes the birds are better than this! It's a good spot for Rufous Bristlebird - MOST days!
