Hi all,

Just heard an Eastern Koel calling from a Camphor Laurel here in Lambton 
(suburb of Newcastle, NSW).

I have also noticed a large influx of Mary Fartins around the Hunter Estuary 
(in groups of up to 20 birds). Also heard a White-throated Gerygone at Seaham 
last week but unsure if that would be a migrant bird.

Of interest, I had a report from Allan Richardson of a Black-eared Cuckoo at 
Warkworth, about 15km west of Singleton in the Hunter Valley on Thursday. This 
is a good bird to find in the Hunter, particularly on the eastern edge of the 
Wollemi escarpment.
