hi all
not many postings about bird sightings on the list lately so thought i'd add 
2 WTNTs plus one white-bellied sea eagle and a flock of little lorikeets seen 
from the same balcony at ocean shores (about 20km north of byron bay NSW) this 
morning. fair bit of cloud about after some overnight rain. 
at byron bay i saw two pied oystercatchers and had a tantalising view of a 
large uniformly dark sea bird flying (not gliding - v calm, clear day) twds 
cape byron quite close in but as i was up my neck in water at the time i didn't 
have the bins on. too big for a skua or shearwater. poss sthn giant petrel or 
sooty albatross? but sadly just another one that got away.
