Sat 25Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater
Biodiversity Park, Outer Harbor
Not the most exciting sighting, but from what I've seen there are very few records for Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater on the Lefevre Peninsula (1 eBird record, 1 iNaturalist record.). It was first heard calling when I entered the park, later seen perched on a bush close to the west entrance, still calling. Stayed around for about 1-2 minutes, before being attacked by a Red Wattlebird and flying away. Several photos were taken.(Moderator’s note: Spiny-cheeked Honeyeater is uncommon at this location, but moderately common further north along the coast). eBird checklist

Wed 15Arctic Jaeger
Bald Hill Beach, Gulf St. Vincent
One Arctic Jaeger briefly near the beach. Harassed a Crested Tern, then headed out to sea. Rarely seen in the northern gulf, and my last sighting at this location was in December 2019.
