Streaked Shearwater, Campbell Albatross, Hutton's Shearwater
Offshore--Sydney Pelagic
Overall, we had a reasonable May day with all the expected species seen as well as a few surprises. A late Streaked Shearwater passed in front of the boat some distance away only to promptly disappear in the glare of the sun. The other highlights included 3 Campbell Albatrosses of various ages a mix of Shearwaters, a number of Wilson's Storm-Petrels and a couple of rare sea mammals (a mixed pod of Melon-headed whales and the even rarer Fraser's dolphin). Both species often associate together. Risso's dolphins were also seen. Similar to last month the Storm-Petrels were first observed close to shore (2NM in 70m). Water temperature was still high reaching 24C at the shelf, moderate winds. Photograph thanks to Nick Thompson. eBird checklist

Wed 11 Bush Stone-curlew
Rookwood Cemetery
Spotted over near the rail corridor, not far from the intersection of Weeroona Road and East Street. I am a caretaker in the Cemetery at night. It's a bird I don't often see.
