Great Knot, Eastern Curlew, Little Egret Shoalhaven Heads
Could not find the reported Oriental Plover this afternoon at the waders roost with about two hours searching, the birds were quite spread out though which made it hard. There was a Little Egret hunting along the waters edge at the northern edge of the bay, two Eastern Curlews were sighted as well as a single Great Knot (photo) close to the shore mixing with Pacific Golden Plovers and Bar-tailed Godwits that I spotted just as I was leaving.

Turquoise Parrot Eastlakes Golf Course
A Turquoise Parrot seen on the track between the two golf courses this afternoon wet conditions. Species number 150 for me at this site. Record shot attached (3200 iso !!). Moderator's note (NH): This is an extraordinary find! However, at this location one always needs to consider an escapee.

Plumed Whistling-Duck Apsley Lagoon, south of Bathurst
After 52mm of rain overnight, the Lagoon has gone from a dry claypan to nearly 3/4 full and the waterfowl have returned in some numbers, including a small flock of about 20 Plumed Whistling-Ducks. Not much else of note at the moment... Grey Teal, Pacific Black Duck, Masked Lapwings and a single White-necked Heron at the southern end.

Australasian Shoveler; Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, Red-necked Avocet Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush
Female Australasian Shoveler still present on Triangle Pond and 3 Royal Spoonbill and a Nankeen Night-Heron. 50 Sharp-tailed Sandpiper and 9 Red-necked Avocet at Waterbird Refuge, plus 2 each of Red-kneed Dotterel and Black-fronted Dotterel and 5 Bar-tailed Godwit. Total of 5 Buff-banded Rail seen at Triangle Pond (1) and Northern Water feature (4) but the mud present last week has been inundated by storm water - was covered up at 6:30am this morning so no other visible crakes/rails. Plenty of Little Grassbirds visible here though and calling.

Plumed Whistling-Duck, Whistling Kite, Nankeen Kestrel, White-bellied Sea-Eagle, Brown Goshawk Central Coast Wetlands (Pioneer Dairy), Tuggerah
Three hours (10.15-1315 hrs ) were spent at this drying out wetland by 28 members of the CCGBNSW. Highlights was a flock of 41 Plumed Whistling-Duck on the Dairy Swamp, 94 Australian Wood Ducks, and 60+ Masked Lapwings. Straw-necked Ibis and Cattle Egrets have returned to the wetlands, and 2 Whistling Kites, a White-bellied Sea-Eagle, Black-shouldered Kite, 2 Nankeen Kestrels and a juvenile Brown Goshawk were seen.

Alan Morris & 28 members CCGBNSW

Latham's Snipe, Brown Quail, Red-kneed Dotterel, Nankeen Night-Heron McPherson Rd Swamp, Gavenlock Rd Tuggerah
The Central Coast Group of Birding NSW spent 2 hours (8.15-10.15 am) at this swamp this rnorning seeing 50 species of birds.

Alan Morris & 27 other observers

Eastern Yellow Wagtail, Australian Painted Snipe, Red-kneed Dotterel Hexham Swamp
Two Eastern Yellow Wagtails (M. tschutschensis) along the old pipeline track late this afternoon. First heard, then one bird seen only a few metres in front of the car. The second (calling) bird "dragged" the other bird away and they both flew north. A male Australian Painted Snipe also near Fishery Creek, along with one Latham's Snipe. 1000+ Black-winged Stilt, 1000+ Straw-necked Ibis, 100's of Sharp-tailed Sandpiper (c.780 counted earlier in the day at high tide), 2x Marsh Sandpiper, 2x Red-necked Stint, Common Greenshank calling and c.80 Red-kneed Dotterel (Ann Lindsey counted 91 earlier in the day). 2x Spotless Crake, 1x Australian Spotted Crake, 1x Baillon's Crake, a lone Glossy Ibis and plenty (c.40) of White-fronted Chat. The place was alive with birds! NOTE - access to this part of Hexham Swamp is now by induction only due to major rail works happening at the northern end of the swamp. I would assume that the Yellow Wagtails would be frequenting Ash Island as well.

Oriental Plover Shoalhaven Heads Inlet
After 1 hour of searching through many Pacific Golden Plovers and other Shorebirds, Phil spotted one lone Oriental Plover in the Samphire on the southern end of the Inlet/bay (next to Comerong Island). We all agreed, it was very different to a PGP and the whiteness really stood out. I had views for 2 minutes through my scope and noticed the bird appeared nervous by our presence. Phil approached a little closer after a few minutes, and the bird started walking in a start/stop manner amongst the samphire in what looked like a confused fashion while heading west. It was then chased by Red-capped Plovers who had young with them. The Oriental Plover did not take flight but we could not relocate it as we were then looking into the sun. The bird showed a lot of white on the head and face area as well as body. It was standing upright and the neck was noticeably longer than that for Pacific Golden Plover. We noticed a light rufuous/buff colouring on the nape/neck. We could not see the feet behind the plants. The bird was seen at 2:45pm at low tide in full sun but as we were facing south east to look at the bird, it was not a glaring view as it was for the many other waders feeding in the mudflats. We also saw 6 White-fronted Chats close up feeding and a number of Little Terns. Carla Jackett

Oriental Plover (NSW ORAC submission required) Shoalhaven Heads
The Oriental Plover recorded by Graeme Cox at Shoalhaven Heads yesterday was present again today. One bird was observed at the high tide roost between 8.00am and 10.30 am along with a single Great Knot, two Sharp-tailed Sandpipers, three Australian Pied Oystercatchers, Bar-tailed Godwit, Eastern Curlew, Pacific Golden Plover, Red-necked Stint, Red-capped Plover, Little Tern, White-fronted Chat, Peregrine Falcon, Australasian Pipit, Chestnut Teal, Grey Teal, Black Swan, Australian White Ibis, Australian Pelican, Masked Lapwings, Superb Fairy-wren and other assorted bush-birds. The Oriental Plover was quite relaxed and behaviours included, preening, resting/sleeping on one leg, avoiding godwits, golden plovers and oystercatchers and chasing golden plovers. Approach to the roost site was made prone to the ground, (muddy and wet) upright approach causes too much disturbance. The OP mixed with other shorebirds during the entire session. Moderator's note (NH): As mentioned before this great bird will require a submission to NSW ORAC.
Matthew Jones

Ground Parrot Barren Grounds Nature Reserve
Ground Parrot (1) Down the 'backside' of the loop track from the carpark... about 100 meters before the turn off to Cooks Nose Pass and Griffins Trail split, I flushed it from the grass on the side of the track. It flew into the bush about 15 meters and I went around behind it and it flushed again. Very good looks.
R. Bruce Richardson

Australian Painted Snipe Shellharbour Swamp
Australian Painted Snipe is still there. Far northwest corner of the pond in the reeds then out, then in again, from about 4:30pm on to 6:30pm. Worth the wait.

Oriental Plover (NSW ORAC submission required) Shoalhaven Heads
Can across this bird this morning while photographing the Pacific Golden Plover. It was located in the second bay to the south from Shoalhaven Heads caravan park. Moderator's note (NH): This amazing observation will require a submission to NSW ORAC.
Graeme Cox

Little Egret, Grey Goshawk, Nepean Weir, Penrith
Saw a white phase Grey Goshawk mingling with a group of Sulphur-crested Cockatoos then it separated and perched in a casuarina. Appears to have been using cockies as cover while hunting, something I have heard the species will do. Also observed a gorgeous Little Egret as it flew by me and heard a Little Grassbird across the river at one of the quarry ponds. Near the brewery I saw a pair of Crested Shrike-tit, a spot I've seen them at before a number of times, though they are not common. Link below provides more images from outing.

Even a male Cicadabird was seen to try to get in on the feeding frenzy but was quickly chased away.

A. Painted Snipe, Pectoral Sandpiper, Osprey, A. Spotted Crake, Red-kneed Dotterel, Latham's Snipe Shellharbour Swamp
1810 hours at the same site as seen previously the Australian Painted Snipe was gloriously present and out in the open as has become usual in that little pond. It was standing in deeper water than usual, all the way up to its belly with no leg visible at all. Over the next two hours it moved around feeding and resting. When feeding it sometimes put its whole head under the water, which I hadn't seen before. At times it moved right out of the water up onto the mud in front of the reeds, although I did not notice it feeding there. When moving around or on alert it bobbed its tail up and down as it slightly extends its neck. It continued to flash it's extended raised wings at any Purple Swamphen that came within its line of site, although it seems to ignore all other species nearby (eg Eurasian Coot, Australian Spotted Crake). Pectoral Sandpiper was also there, also within the same sandspit areas as seen previously. While there with Lorraine Pincus an Osprey flew in and landed in the water in front of the sandspit of the sandpiper and proceeded to have a little wash.
Jill Molan

Baillon's Crake, Spotted Crake, Spotless Crake, Lewin's Rail Tuggerah STP
A quick stop on the way home from work around 5.40pm in drizzling rain proved very successful with all 3 crake species and Lewin's Rail feeding along the mud banks at the Tuggerah STP. Baillon's feeding with a Latham's Snipe, while Australian Spotted and Spotless were seen within 1 meter of each other at the same time while the Lewin's Rail showed in the same spot. (Moderator's Note: 3 Australian Spotted Crakes and 1 Lewin's Rail still present 23/1/13, also 21 Glossy Ibis, 4 Australasian Shoveler, 2 Musk Duck, Swamp Harrier, Brown Falcon and Grey Goshawk .AKM)
Brad Gabriel

juvenile Fluttering Shearwater Horseshoe Bay. South West Rocks
Found a shearwater on the headland of Horseshoe Bay under a light. Was easily picked up and relocated to a much quiter area at Little Bay. When returned in the morning to check to see if it had moved on we saw it fly out from the shrub we placed it under and it flew off over the ocean obviously after a much needed rest. Was most likely a young bird that had lost its way and became weak. Moderator's note (NH): This bird was initially reported as a Little Shearwater and then thought to be an Audubon's Shearwater (Tropical Shearwater) by the observer. Today (27/01/2013) I received the attached photo that shows a juvenile Fluttering Shearwater. For comparison of the features see also here (this one was taken off Wollongong, 28th Jan 2012):
Jake Webb

Southern Boobook Avoca Beach, New South Wales (Central Coast)
Three beautiful Southern Boobooks spotted in a tree together right next to our house early this morning, 22 January. Two have been identified as juveniles and the third has darker plumage (not in the photo) and so could possibly be older. I have just checked and they are still there - how lucky are we! Many thanks to Alan for positively identifying them.

Banded Lapwings at the Crowleys Lane end of Yarramundi Lane, at the 'Always Greener Turf' farm.
Emma Croker

Pectoral Sandpiper, Australian Painted Snipe, Eastern Reef Egret Shellharbour Swamp
A great couple of hours with more than 50 species seen or heard. The male Painted Snipe showed well in the NW corner of the wetland just after arrival, and the Pectoral Sandpiper was easily seen along the wetland's eastern edge. A pair of grey Eastern Reef Egrets was also spotted by Charles Dove - it seems extremely unusual to see them in a freshwater wetland. Also good to see were 4 Spotted Crakes, a Baillon's Crake, and 5 Latham's Snipe. It is terrible that another good habitat is going to be lost for good. Hopefully this single Snipe can have something to say before that happens, and our environment minister will show some guts and actually protect the environment.
Ashwin Rudder

Sun 20 Jan Forest KIngfisher Nambucca Heads
Two birds sighted, one on the power lines at Hyland Park, the second in forest near the foreshore of Deep Creek.

Black Petrel, Buller's Shearwater, Gould's Petrel, Sooty Tern Pelagic off Port Stephens
A single Black Petrel and two Buller's Shearwaters were the highlights on the Port Stephens pelagic yesterday (yes, it was a poor cousin to Southport!). Also a Gould's Petrel and several Sooty Terns (est. 12 birds) along with the usual suspects, although Fleshy-foot numbers still down on what would normally be expected.
Mick Roderick et al

White-necked Petrel Batemans Bay 10' Cell
White-necked Petrel (1) Large black and white petrel. Very elegant flight with few wingbeats. Striking feature that caught my attention was the large white neck band that contrasted well with the very dark cap. Dark grey upperparts with presence of a darker M-like mark. Rump and tail dark grey with a narrow whitish band across the rump. Underparts white with black lining - briefly seen but black lining seemed thicker in the carpal area.

Great Shearwater (BARC submission required) Mistral Point, Maroubra
A Great Shearwater was sighted this afternoon amongst Wedge-tailed Shearwaters flying south at around 15:30, close-in off Mistral Point. Features noted were: black cap, greyish upper wing, distinctive white bar on upper aspect of tail, mainly white underwing with significant dark trailing edge and dark axillary lines. Shortly after this sighting a pod of very active False Killer Whales appeared off Mistral Point heading south. Three to four adults were accompanied by at least one youngster - the juvenile breached many times in a row which was delightful to watch. An amazing day. Working through video footage of the whales . . . Moderator's note (NH): This amazing observation will require a submission to BARC.
