The Eurobodalla Natural History Society publishes a lovely annual report
titled  "Nature in the Eurobodalla", a legacy of the the late Stephen
Marchant I gather. Picnic Point must be south of the Eurobodalla Shire
but it still gives a good idea of species status in the region.

Brahminy Kite and Superb Fruit-Dove don't seem to be have been recorded
in the Eurobodalla.

Tahiti Petrel is listed as a rare summer pelagic.  Hutton's Shearwater
is also apparently not common with no records in the 2002 report.

Channel-billed Cuckoos are easily observed near Moruya so may not be
a remarkable record even south of Bermagui. But the rest are
pretty impressive for bumming around!
