Hunter Rarity: Common Noddy
My phone rang hot yesterday as I sat on registers at work. It wasn't until I had finished my shift that a found out that a Common Noddy had been seen that afternoon. Noddies are rare visitors to the Hunter coast so this was an opportunity to good to miss. I flew down to Newcastle Baths with Rob and was greeted by Dan who was looking at the bird.....how easy is that! The bird moved twice before retreating back out to sea.
Also present were heaps of Sooty Oystercatcher, a few well coloured Ruddy Turnstones and the usual Crested Terns and Silver Gull.Not a bad after work twitch.
