Hi Everyone,

The tern flocks are building up on the Caloundra sandbanks, and this is the
final tally from last week's surveys (16th Jan, 03), done on a low and
rising tide.

Note that "Terns unidentified" will add to the numbers of Little Terns,
White-winged Black Terns and Common Terns, probably much in proportion with
the actual numbers listed for those species.
