Yesterday I saw a Black-browed Mollymawk 200-300 metres offshore from the Sirens in the Taputeranga Marine Reserve (in front of Dive Wellington and the Beach House). It was interesting to see it close to shore - it was flying with several Fluttering Shearwaters in a moderate northwest wind.

Plimmerton Domain is the place to be if you are a Song Thrush. Usually Blackbirds outnumber them on playing fields, but around lunchtime today I counted around 20 Song Thrushes and 5 Blackbirds near the car park in Plimmerton Domain. That is the largest number of Song Thrushes I've seen in one place.
