Hi all,
Went to Maroubra for a few hours this morning and didn't see the OBP - I think the wind didn't help...second time I've dipped. Anyway did see a few interesting birds, the best being a Southern Emu-Wren litterally popping out of a bust that I was standing next to. This was about 1/3 away along the track that goes right to the swamp (where OBP had been reported). Also a Horsefield Bronze-Cuckoo calling loudly across the heath. At the headland saw a few Black-Browed Albatross, and a number of groups of Hutton's Shearwater passing by as well as good number of Short-Tailed Shearwater.
