Just spent two weeks camping at Booderee National Park, Jervis Bay. Highlights were: three Channel-billed Cuckoo DY begging (no, more like assaulting) their foster parent Currawongs for food. They must have been nearly twice the bulk of the CWs. There was an adult CBC arround but keeping a low profile. Also had a great sighting of a family of Southern Emu Wrens, which was a real treat.  And at the other end of the size spectum, fantastic 45 mins watching a juvenile White-bellied Sea-eagle over the cliffs and ocean. Parents looking on lovingly. Also, family of Boobook owls in the trees above the camp site came out most evenings at dusk in the first week and flew arround practicing and by the end of the second week they seem to have dispersed. Heaps of Yellow Robins with young at many stages (must have been a good breeding year).
