highlightRegent Honeyeater
Hunter Region Botanic Gardens
At least 3 birds chasing insects in eucalypts, high in the trees. (Moderator's Note: Remarkably, this sighting comes the day after the Regent HE at Old Bar yesterday 20/07/2018 [#234912], with these being the first Regent Honeyeater sightings in NSW since late January [171 days to be exact] and the first wild birds reported from anywhere since mid-May. Hopefully many more to follow! MR)

At Port Macquarie (Charles Sturt University) we managed to locate at least 5 Swift Parrots on the south side of the uni car park as documented by Alan Morris and others recently. Another first for us.

highlightRegent Honeyeater
Old Bar Beach
A last minute turn off to Old Bar Beach and the car park area just before the 4WD access to the beach itself. We parked here and a Regent Honeyeater was seen perched briefly when we got out of our car, then flew across the car park 15-20 metres away from us with good views as it flew by. Our first ever sighting of this species! (Moderator's Note: The bird has been seen and photographed this morning 22/07/2018. MR).
