Terry's story reminded me of the embarassment that one used to experience
(and maybe current sea-birders still do!) when the boat for seas-birding
trips off Sydney used to pass not far off Lady Jane Beach, a well-known
nude bathing beach just inside Sydney Heads.  A boat-load of (clothed)
odd-bods wielding binoculars and telephoto lenses got some hard looks from
the sub-bathers.  One tended to peer very hard at any nearby Silver-Gulls,
just to have somewhere else to look.
