After Tom Tarrant's report on Sunday 21, I tried to get to Southbank on Monday 
afternoon. There was a major crash on the Pacific Highway and I did not make 
Brisbane until after dark! Monday night there was a south west change with 
strong winds. I tried again on Tuesday 23, arriving at 3.15pm.and stayed until 
dusk. There were lots of Silver gulls but no Franklin's. I met Paul Walbridge 
who was feeding the gull until 3pm on Monday at the children's wading pool at 
Southbank, He had some great photos taken at close range. There were no 
sightings at all on Tuesday.
Has anyone seen the bird since?
I would like to have a 3rd try if he/she is seen again.
