As a new subscriber I am not yet familiar with the
discussion subjects on this site, so I will just give some brief initial
My location is 9km West of the Pacific Highway just
North of Woolgoolga which itself is about 15 minutes North of Coffs Harbour,
I live on a small block in the bush and have been
birding for about 50 years, 20years of which were in Australia the rest
Whilst I have confirmed rarity sightings in British
Birds, my birding now is somewhat restricted to my home site.
Activity this week has been the visits on a few
days of small numbers of Glossy Black Cockatoos. They have been seen
intermittently for about 13 years here.
5 or 6 White-Throated Honeyeaters are calling in
most days. (Grevillia Superb preferred).
Log Runners are resident breeders on my block. ( 3
to 4 breeding pairs).
A single Jabiru was sited on small ponds within 2km
of here this week (Occasional through the year).
A Powerful Owl was heard last week.
Pacific Baza - resident breeder seen (and heard)
We have a general array of regular species which
includes 3 of the Fairy Wrens, several Honeyeaters, pigeons (occasional Wompoo),
Lorikeets (including Little) and many others.
I look forward to hearing the news.
