Hi Birders,

A Frigate-bird was seen briefly overhead at a distance of 60 metres today at 1100 hrs when rain had driven 13 participants of a Follow That Bird Tour, back towards the coach in the carpark at the mangrove board walk, Ash Island. The bird circled twice and then disappeared further up the South Arm of the Hunter River. We believe that it was an immature Greater Frigate-bird. Before finalising our report I would be interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen the same bird in Newcastle Harbour. There are very few records for Greater Frigate-birds in NSW, Lesser Frigate-birds are more common.
