Common Diving Petrel, Fairy Prion. A sea-watch this aternoon 1530-1630 hrs at Soldiers Point showed that Fairy Prions were still common offshore. During the whole time I was there, a group of 180-200 Fairy Prions were feeding about 50m offshore of the rocks in a small area ( others were futhere out) and amongst then was one Common Diving Petrel. At least 5 Black-browed Albatross 2A & 3 Immatures were also present. Small numbers (15-20) Fluttering Shearwaters were passing north in small groups of 3-5 birds further out. About 10+ Australasian Gannets and two Humpback Whales were seen.. On the rocks were a pair of Sooty Oystercatchers and earlier in the day, an Eastern Reef Egret was seen by other observers. Site:Soldiers Point, Norah Head, Central Coast. Observer:Alan Morris

Hide this Checklist?
Hiding a checklist will exclude the taxa on it from all forms of eBird output that show a location (including bar charts, maps, and arrival/departure tables), but the observation will still be accessible to you, and will appear on your lists.
It will be considered not public in the eBird database since we cannot approve bird records without accurate location information.
Although we understand that some checklists need to be excluded from eBird's public output due to privacy concerns or other issues, we strongly recommend against this unless absolutely necessary.
