Hello all,

The three species of oystercatchers currently recognised on the 'Australian'
list were once again to be seen together at Pelican Park on the Redcliffe
Peninsular north of Brisbane at high-tide 4/7/01.

Pied Oystercatcher  Haematopus longirostris   approx 12
Sooty Oysteratcher H. fuliginosus   1 only
South Island Pied Oystercatcher  H.finschi    1 only

This is the fourth time this year that I have seen a Sooty Oystercatcher (always
only 1) at this location.
And the second time I have seen all three species together there.

The South Island Pied Oystercatcher has now been in this area for over 3 months
and there is still a very good chance of seeing this bird along with a flock of
up to 30 Pied Oystercatchers on the boat-ramp rock-wall during high-tide.

To help people unfamiliar with the area I have added a page of maps to the WWW
pages of SIPO information.
To see the maps go to:   (for
the record there is a _ [underscore] between 'map' and 'page', not a space).
Use the links on the page to view the other SIPO pages.
