I am surprised that you did not realise the number of sightings of
Lesser Crested Tern we get in Moreton Bay.  I have included some of the
sightings in the Queensland Wader over the last couple of years.  If you
go back through the newsletters to August 1998 you can also add Amity on
North Stradbroke and St. Helena Island to the list.
