I escaped for a quick day out at the above sites on the northern beaches of Sydney today.  The strong breezes didn't help much, but managed a goodish  list.  Of interest (amongst what I would count as "the usual suspects"):
At Long Reef:
3 Whimbrels
6+ Golden Plovers
1 Jaeger sp (Pomarine I think) offshore
1 Black Browed Albatross (in very close)
Lots of shearwaters further out
At Warriewood Wetlands:
2 Brown Goshawks
1 Buff Banded Rail
1 Great Egret
4 Black Faced Monarchs
1 Tawny Grassbird.  (Was flushed from swampy patch of grass, and unusually sat in the open on the rail of the boardwalk for 20 seconds before a visiting Sacred Kingfisher decided to dive bomb it, when it promptly disappeared into the reeds, not to be seen again!)
