Hi Jill & others
I have read about your tern counts Jill with great interest.
Do you have any records in recent times on the Sunshine Coast of afinnis  
Gull-billed Terns amongst the visiting terns you've surveyed?
Myself & Adam Arnold first noticed them here in Cairns amongst the visiting 
Aussie breeding Gull-bills in very small numbers in October 2007 (3 birds). We 
have had them here in small numbers in summers since, but the most we've had on 
the Cairns Esplanade site at any time is 4 birds. They arrive late October & 
have usually gone by early March (there are none here at the moment).
Very curious if you get them down there with any regularity....??
