The Laughing Gull has re-located to the Cairns Esplanade this week and
was still there this afternoon (30/1/09) when we looked at 2.30, it was
with a group of Silver Gulls. Plenty of Grey-tailed Tattler, Lesser and
Greater Sandplover, Curlew Sandpiper, Great Knot, Whimbrel, Bar-tailed
Godwit, a Grey phase Reef Egret, Striated Heron, Little Egret, Little
Tern (6), Gull-billed Tern, Crested Tern and a pair of Pied
Oystercatchers. A bonus on the way home was a white phase Grey Goshawk
swooping down over the highway near Yule Point (south of Port Douglas).
It landed beside the road and gave us good looks as we drove past, not a
common sight in these parts of Far North Queensland.
