Fairy Terns and Little Tern sightings in Gippsland VIC

Subject: Fairy Terns and Little Tern sightings in Gippsland VIC

I'm asking for reports of sightings over the next few weeks of small tern 
- Sternula albifrons and Sternula nereis (Fairy Tern and Little Tern) in 
Victoria, in particular birds spotted in Gippsland where both species 
range overlap. 

These birds start to migrate into Gippsland roughly around October and 
depart sometime in March. Sightings would greatly assist me and my 
Departmental biodiversity colleagues in quickly targeting areas for our 
monitoring program during their breeding season. 

Many thanks in advance
