Mon 19 Sep Cockatiel 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??

Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo 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.

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)

Wed 14 Sep 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.

Tue 13 Sep 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
