Turquoise Parrot in the Shallow Crossing area

ENHS members, Bill and Marie, have reported 2 Turquoise Parrots in the Bimberamala/Budawang NP area just north of Shallow Crossing.  The dry weather inland is certainly driving some interesting species to the coast.

Interesting sightings

There have been a number of sightings of Baillon's Crake around the Eurobodalla.  At least 8 at the Batemans Bay Water Gardens, 2 at the Eurobodalla Botanic Gardens and 6 at Cooper's Island.  Also a female Red-capped Robin at Batemans Bay Water Gardens.  Dry conditions inland often means interesting sightings on the coast.

Eastern Osprey nest on Budd Island, Batemans Bay

The nesting activity of a pair of Eastern Osprey at Batemans Bay has attracted the attention of the Conservation Officer for BirdLife Australia Shoalhaven.  Nesting of this species south of Sydney is unusual, nesting on a natural structure even more so.  Chris visited the nest in June and captured these photos of the pair despite less than ideal conditions for photography.
