Dear Birders
A Black-necked Stork was reported on 3rd June near Craven, east of Gloucester, NSW 2422, trying to eat a large fishy item, possibly an eel (it was wrapped around the stork's bill), by my neighbour as he drove back to town at about 9 am.  Later, on the train going to Sydney I kept a sharp eye open at this spot in case it was still around but only saw a Peregrine fly lazily over. This is the third sighting of a Jabaru between Gloucester and Craven since I moved here end September last year.
The same neighbour saw 3 adult Sea-eagles on his property - 2 doing tumbling falls clutching talons, same day earlier.
Bye for now
