Have just returned from a week at Norfolk Island. Fabulous place for a
holiday. Saw Slender-billed Whiteye, Golden Whistler, Grey Gerygone,
Chook, California Quail, Norfolk Island Parakeet, White Tern, Pacific
Robin in the first two days. A bonus was the Long-tailed Cuckoo seen
once at the Botanical Gardens.
Seabirds were prolific with Black Noddies along with Wedge-tailed
Shearwaters being the most common. Masked Boobies, Sooty Terns, Red
Tailed Tropicbirds, Grey Ternlets, Great Frigatebirds, and the
occasional Common Noddy were seen.
Managed a trip to Phillip Island. While it was past peak breeding
season, managed to see Masked Boobies, Grey Ternlets, Black and Common
Noddies, Sooty Terns, Black-winged Petrels and Red-tailed Tropicbirds
all at close quarters including juveniles and chicks (fluff balls).
Many Golden Plovers, Turnstones and Wimbrels were in the vicinity of
Kingston. The Golden plovers were certainly colouring up nicely.
38 species in all.
I wish to thank those that have posted trip reports to Norfolk Island
