Sun 20megamegaBlack-fronted Tern
Fort Scratchley, Newcastle
Seen (and poorly photographed) at c.9.45 am for several minutes flying back and forth over the northern-eastern part of Fort Scratchley but initially assumed to be an Arctic-type Tern. Seen again with Jon Spicer-Bell at c.11.20 am. It spent several minutes flying back and forth over an exposed and windy area of lawn near -32.92559,151.79225. Nearly landed several times and at one point photographed taking an earthworm. Last seen flying along slowly out past the breakers. Correct identification first suggested by Angus Daly after Jon Spicer-Bell posted a photo to the NSW Rare Bird Alert Facebook group. Identification later confirmed by various experts after more photos were posted to the Australian Twitchers Facebook group.

Update on Pacific Gull at Flat Rock, Ballina. Seen one bird resting right on Dawn. Looking fairly chilled out and relaxed, only one bird sighted.

Sat 19highlightSouthern Fulmar, Southern Giant Petrel and Bullers Albatross
Magic Point, Maroubra
An excellent sea watch today with a Southern Fulmar showing very well about the middle of the day within 300 metres from shore as first spotted by Robert . It appeared to be heading to Maroubra Bay before dissapearing. An adult Bullers Albatross seen earlier in the morning with an Immature Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross. A few Giant Petrels also came in close enough to identify a Southern amongst 4 juvenile Giant Petrels (both species photographed) . Also seen were about a dozen Grey-faced Petrels, 60 plus Black-browed, a few Campbell and at least 7 Shy Albatross, 60 plus Fluttering and 2 Huttons Shearwaters and a White - fronted Terns.

highlightSouthern Fulmar
Magic Point, Maroubra
Another Southern Fulmar seen today, possibly 2 (12:30pm & 3:20pm) Very good numbers of Black-browed Albatross c70. 10+ Grey-faced Petrel, 1 Brown Skua etc seen today. This is my 10th Southern Fulmar at Maroubra and the only one I’ve been able to photograph and I use the word photograph very loosely.
