Frances and I have just spent three very pleasant days based on the Broulee/Moruya area.  On the way home Frances asked me for the three best birds of the trip.  I think my response was 9 Pacific Golden Plovers at Mystery Bay; a mob (they were a mob not a flock) of 9 Little Egrets rushing aroud the most Easterly part of Corunna Lake and the White-cheeked Honeyeater at Percy Davis Drive.   She asked about the Striated Heron in the campground at Congo - drat, I'd overlooked that. 
I have now recalled the most interesting bird of the trip which was the pictured immature Australasian Gannet beach-cast at Congo.  It seemed somewhat sleepy, but basically OK.  As there was no-one else, nor any dogs, on the beach we left it to regather its resourecs.  Other goodies were an Eastern Reef Heron at Mystery bay and 4 Pied Cormorants at Broulee.  It was also nice to see good numbers of Pied and Sooty Oystercatchers at a range of beaches and at least three White-bellied Sea Eagles.
Large numbers of Eastern Spinebills and New Holland Honeyeaters in Callistemon and Grevillea were also entertaining as always..
