Hi All.
Spent an hour this morning at Soldier's Pt. on the Central Coast of NSW looking at the thousands of Fluttering Shearwaters present at the moment.  Many were feeding in rafts close to shore.  There were quite a few Huttons SW in amongst them.  Aside from 2 Gannets the only other birds of note were at least 7 White-fronted Terns, one in nice adult breeding plumage, and a single Brown (Great) Skua.
PS to Alan Morris:  5 pairs of Red-capped Plovers at Karagi Pt on seaward side of fence.
