Hi folks

Just back from a week of mental health leave at Mimosa Rocks National Park between Bega and Bermagui on the NSW South Coast. Too busy already to post a proper report!!! ... but from a week of bumming around at Picnic Point (PP) campground, the highlights were as follows:

Tahiti Petrel - one seen flying along the breaker line off  PP

Shearwaters - squillions offshore - mostly Short-tailed with some Wedge-tailed, Fluttering and at least one Huttons - about 20-30 beachwashed pale morph Wedge-tails around PP headland

Brahminy Kite - one immature, somewhat south of normal range?

Superb Fruit-Dove - one in Lillypilly rainforest remnant adjacent to Spotted Gum forest inland from PP, somewhat south of normal range?

Channel-billed Cuckoo - heard before and immediately after dawn one day, one bird, somewhat south of normal range?

Various other ubiquitous East Coast lovelies such as Black-faced Monarch, Satin Bowerbird, Wonga Pigeon .........
