The Laughing Gull was present on Bribie Island today, January 8, between
11.45 and 12.15 at least.  It spent all of this time on the beach some 500
metres north of Scoopy's, almost halfway back towards the bridge.  A good
strategy for intending visitors would be to check all gulls between the
bridge, Scoopy's and Buckley's Hole.

Beware of mis-identifying its call.  I was approached by an old fellow: "Is
that a camera?" says he.  "No" says I, "it's a telescope".  "I've got no
teeth" he announces, "and I can yodel".  "It's actually a telescope" I
repeat, hoping to distract him.   No use.  "I've got no teeth and I can
yodel" he re-asserts, and proceeds to demonstrate.  Ouch, no laughing

Cheers - Trevor.
