Spent a week birding in WA from the 9-16 of July.
Saw a total of 102 species from the areas of Perth, Geraldton & Cue.
Spent a day in Perth City observed many of the usual locals like Rainbow
Lorikeet, Singing Honeyeater & Laughing Dove also saw large numbers of Darter
around the swan river, up to 7 seen in a group perched upon a jetty.
Drove north to Gerladton seeing quite a few species along the way notably
Short-billed Black Cockatoo,Western Corella,Western Rosella, large flocks of
silvereye, and an Osprey feeding on a large fish at Leeman Bay.

walking track, saw quite a few species here including dozens of lone Grey
Fantails everywhere, Inland and Chestnut-rumped thornbill, two Fairywren

Austin which is east of Cue had a fair level of water and produced hundreds of

Saw an unidentified water flying over head of Lake Austin, notes tell me it had
a noticable white underside, medium length black bill, distinct eyebrow and was
making a very far crying piercing shriek as it flew over head into the distance
sounding not unlike a call of a magpie.
