Am just back from a few days spent at Mollymook on the NSW South Coast.
Didn't get much time for birding due to family commitments and a fair bit
of rain.

We did have a huge Blue-tongued Skink living under the house and great
views of the escarpment from the back verandah. Single WHITE-HEADED PIGEONS
were around the neighbourhood as well.
On Saturday I found a pair of HOODED PLOVERS at Dolphin Point along with a
single BAR-TAILED GODWIT and both oystercatcher species and a WHITE-NECKED
HERON at Milton. On Sunday at Narrawallee Inlet I watched an adult
WHITE-BELLIED SEA-EAGLE chase and attempt to catch a GREAT CORMORANT, which
was forced to dive underwater to escape the eagle's talons and a qucik
stroll along Millards Creek Walk produced two OLIVE-BACKED ORIOLES and

On Monday we drove home via Gerringong, Kiama, Jamberoo and in Budderoo
National Park at the Illawarra Fly Treetop Walk where several PILOTBIRDS
were calling. Also BLACK-FACED MONARCH along Jamberoo Mountain Road.
