The Little Terns are back (and covered in more bling than an Eminem concert 
crowd) ! "More on that story later.."

Penrhyn am (on the spit - no not a cooking spit..although...)

49 BTG
6 Red Knot
2 Sharpies
2 Curlew Sandpiper
1 Crested Tern

Eastlakes am
Of note:

2 Whiskered Tern
1 Caspian Tern
15 Sharpies
10 Snipe

Penrhyn pm (on the spit)

55 BTG
6 Red Knot
2 Curlew Sandpiper
34 Crested Terns
1 WF Tern
3 Little Tern (at one stage there were all 3 species in a line along the shore)
15 RN Stint
2 Pelican
1 Australian Ibis (feeding on bait from a washed up bag)

+20 Sharpies (adjacent to oyster bed under a mangrove bush) - I strongly 
suspect that the Sharpies move back and forth from Penrhyn and Eastlakes (some 
3kms apart).
