Hi all

Finally got myself a BSC - on the Esplanade at Cairns - but not at the northern 
end where it has been seen often, but this mornign at 8.15 there was one on the 
mud not far from the walkway - opposite Rydge's hotel (and that is not an ad!)

Lots of other nice birds here  - including Broad-billed and Terek Sandpipers, 
both usual Godwits in large numbers, and many many Whimbrel & Curlew.

Now I understand why Cairns is such a birding destination - a bit like 
Werribee, but with a Casino and shops instead of ducks ...  and a pool you CAN 
swim in!
