Hi All, Mike Simpson,  Mike asked the question re the abundance of Frigate Birds in the Sydney area. Alan Morris usually answers these questions but maybe he is away.
There are 5 confirmed records for NSW all of the Greater Frigate Bird, an unconfirmed record last year of a Greater observed off a Northern beach by A McBride.The only record of a Least Frigate Bird, to my knowledge, was one observed off a Sydney Pelagic on the 27-2-84. 
For Sydney Listers there were 2 Sanderlings at Long Reef on Saturday and some White-browed and Masked Woodswallows at Catti NP last Wednesday.
