Hi All,
On the front page of a local paper this week (Melville Times) was a lead article on the current nesting attempt by 40 pairs of Fairy Terns at a sand spit at Pt Walter, Perth. This sand spit is well known to West Aussies as it extends approx 750 metres into the Swan River and is used by swimmers, walkers and boaters. About 20% of the spit will now become off limits to the public to at least the end of January and barricades have also been erected. 
To my knowledge this is perhaps the most significant recent breeding attempt by these terns on the Swan River and is an encouraging event considering the problems facing the river and its fish and dependant wildlife.        
Regards    Wynton Maddeford
