Hi all
with the weather caused by ex-cyclone Oswald, there have been several sightings of unusual seabirds from further north, but today at Turramurra (northern Sydney - about 18kms in a straight line to the nearest open sea) I have had Silver Gull go over and then a much bigger gull-shaped bird (Jaeger, Kelp Gull)? Both about 9:30am. (Noisy Miners seriously not happy and making the call that normally means something they are not familiar with is about - very different to the normal predator alarm call.)
No Frigatebirds yet - now that would be a novelty for the house list.
Not sure what it's like down on the coast here in Sydney for a seawatch (apart from visibility would be appalling if it's anything like here at home).
