Hi Penny and all


That area around Limburners Creek seems to be a good area for raptors as I have experienced on previous occasions )and as I have referred in my Dec 03 trip reports).

Dear Bird-aussers


On my way home yesterday from Newcastle University (Birds Oz AGM and meeting), 29 Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos flew over my head as I was filling my car with petrol at the Heatherbrae BP service station at Raymond Terrace, then further up the Pacific Highway by the Truck checking station a single flew over the road. About 5 pm.


Coming up Bucketts Way, just past Limeburners Creek, 3 White-bellied Sea-eagles were wheeling around and around each other - 2 full adults and one 2nd immature (looking at the Hanzab illustrations). Illuminated in the last of the sun - beautiful sight. Often see sea-eagles, Little and Wedge-tail Eagles, Whistling Kites, Swamp Harriers and Ospreys in this area.
