Yesterday, Thursday 25 July, David Stabb and I saw one of the two or three 
Ospreys being reported from the Pt. Nepean National Park on the Mornington 
Peninsula in Victoria, and this in spite of a very limited time schedule. We 
started our search at the point at about 10.45 and worked back from there and 
departed just after seeing an adult bird at 12.45 on the coast below Cheviot 
Hill, the site of most observations. The bird was not visible from the lookout 
itself and we needed to reposition ourselves several times in order to view the 
beach and lower cliffs. 
It was a pleasant day made more so by other birds such as single pairs of Sooty 
Oystercatchers, Kelp Gulls and Peregrine Falcons, 5 Black-faced Cormorants and 
offshore 5 Shy Albatrosses amid 50 Gannets.
