Just back from a week based in Mollymook, near Ulladulla, on the NSW south coast.

Limited birding opportunities but did visit some nice locations.

Warden Head (25/1) had rufous fantail, variegated fairy-wren, etc

Mt Kingiman (25/1) in Morton NP produced a beautiful firetail, brown cuckoo-dove, pilotbirds, crescent honeyeaters, etc.

Large parts of Meroo NP (27/1) are recovering from bushfire. Did hear plenty of scarlet honeyeaters by Termeil Beach. Across the highway at Lemon Tree Ck in Termeil SF more scarlet honeyeaters plus an antechinus, bassian thrush, etc.

Buff-banded rails were easy to spot along the shore of Burrill Lake (27/1) and at Dolphin Pt there was a reef egret and 22 red-capped plovers.

Lake Tabourie (28/1) produced a pair of azure kingfishers fishing from the jetty near the lake mouth.

A visit to Narrawallee Creek NR (29/1) revealed white-cheeked honeyeater, scarlet honeyeater again, variegated fairy-wren, black- faced monarch, etc.

A pod of bottle-nosed dolphins off Mollymook beach was a bonus.
