At Penryhn, next to Botany Container Terminal (that's in Sydney, of course) 
this afternoon, 5 Little Terns evident, 2 of which rested in depressions = 
nesting or just roosting, couldn't tell. Also 2 Curlew Sands, Sharpies, 
Red-necked Stints, Red-capped Plovers, and Bar-tailed Godwits, among others.

bird, the just arrived B707-138, VH-XBA, which originally was the very first QF 
jet, delivered in 1959. It's going to the Longreach Qantas Founders Museum, and 
the restoration done by volunteers to get it airborne again is just 
magnificent, together with support from all sorts of areas, Australian and 

Sorry, 2nd para not exactly birding, but.... :-)
