Recently some Victorian birders expressed surprise at seeing a Grey Fantail at sea. I think it was 5 or 6 kilometres from shore not far from Lakes Entrance. I have seen Grey Fantails in Bass Strait when I've been out on pelagics and I'm sure that they travel between Tasmania and the mainland.
However, yesterday I was most surprised to see one in the very heart of Melbourne, in Bourke Street! That I had not expected to see. I don't have a photo of a Grey Fantail, but here's the very similar and much rarer, Norfolk Island Fantail.
I am about to set off north, in the hope of seeing my jinx bird, the White-necked Petrel. I'm going to Port Stephens, and I hope the birds will perform for me. Keep your fingers crossed.
