About 40 joined the Po Toi outing on last Sunday.  Birds on the island were OK, with Yellow-browed Bunding, Ferruginous, Mugimuki and Grey-streaked Flycatcher, Two-barred and Eastern Crowned Warbler.  The sea is a bit disappointing but still offer a very good view of Greater Crested Tern.  By the end of the trip, we enjoy a flock of needletail, which seem to be mainly White-throated with one Silver-backed.  Thank to many birdwatchers helping to find and photograph birds.  Here is my list.  Please add to it if you have seen more.
