Two nice sightings this weekend in the Sydney area:
Saturday 2 June Maroubra south of the surf club in the messy area
where workmen have created
larger ponds - one Brown Quail. NOTHING interesting
from Magic Point, not even
a Crested Tern, which were on the rock by the
southern end of the beach.
Sunday 3 June Homebush Bay survey - one Buff-banded Rail at Haslams
Creek, plus a female
Musk Duck feeding.
also at Homebush A Restless Flycatcher hovering over the water
on 2SM Pond, taking insects from
very near the surface.
White-breasted Sea Eagles working on their nest in
the Woodland reserve - one was
seen off by an A. Raven.
