|Mon 19 Sep
Don Cutberthson Reserve, Woodridge (Rockingham), Western Australia
I did not realise they are not supposed to be in the Greater South West and would not have reported this sighting, had I not looked them up in Birds of GSW by Simon J Nevill. One bird happily picking seeds of the park lawn; ...... could it be an aviary escapee??
Rockingham beach, along Point Peron Road, Western Australia
A flock of about 15 birds landed and split up - moving around the area, very early morning, feeding on various trees around the gardens. First sighting here in 3 months that I've been here.

||Great Cormorant and Little Black Cormorant
Mangles Bay /Rockingham Beach, Western Australia
3-4 Great Cormorant and a number of Little Black Cormorants seen joining in a fish feeding frenzy, with the regular Pied and little pied cormorants, and pelicans in an aftermath of a storm. Not normally seen around here. (may have captured in a video but no photo)

||New Holland Honeyeater (Leucistic)
10 Mile Brook Dam Road, Margret River, Western Australia
Very White obvious bird active in lower/ middle storey of euc forest near the last property as one fully enters the forest. Had usual calls and trademark hassling of smaller honeyeaters. Some yellow in wing.

||Southern Giant Petrel
Hamelin Bay, off Caves Rd, Karridale area SW WA, Western Australia
Bird visited old jetty for a short break just off the beach in a wild windy arvo, glided for a short distance to water and sat for several minutes absolutely dwarfing the silver gulls, thence floating away with the current-not sure if this is regular round here
