Seems the wind has caused a few feeding changes around Port Philip Bay.

The last two days there has been Gannets feeding  just off the Limeburners Point boatramp near Geelong, and what i'm 90% sure was a Black Faced Cormorant  flying past the same area.  



Following on from Rob's possible sheltering or windblown Arctic Tern,
there were a few terns sheltering by the old rowing shed beside Corio
Bay, opposite Geelong Grammar School this morning.  1 Caspian and 3 or
4 Fairy or Littles  - we get all these here occasionally.  It's
probably my 4th or 5th Caspian record here in 10 years, and I've seen
Fairies here a couple of times.  Fairy & Little Terns are more commonly
observed around the Pt Lillias / Pt Wilson area.  perhaps they found
the shoreline near GGS a little less buffeted by wind this morning.

I hope they are still there tonight or tomorrow as I was running so
late I didn't have time to go back for a pair of bins to check what
species I was looking at.
