Thu 22 Dec Beach Stone-curlew Buckley's Hole, Bribie Island
Observed two Beach Stone-curlews between Red Beach and Buckley's Hole late in the afternoon. They were close to the southern end of Buckley's. It was surprising that they were there given the amount of dog footprints in the "dog free" area along the beach.

Mon 19 Dec possible Pacific Gull Banksia Beach, Bribie Island
A large black and white gull with a black tail band was seen flying away from the observer. Birders in this area should keep a look out for this bird as it showed characteristics of Pacific Gull (but the head / bill were not seen). It was clearly not the adult Kelp Gull which has been in the area. (Ed. Rob Morris).
