I have sent Kellie Harman a message this morning via Eremaea messaging asking for a more precise location along the Esplanade - no reply yet but she is probably out and about enjoying her holidays I did receive the following from Kath Shurcliffe who is one of the Queensland moderators for Eremaea "I understand the Laughing Gull has not been confirmed. One of the other moderators is chasing that one up for more details. So we are awaiting additional information, or a confirmation sighting."

Hi Colin & Martin,
If you are a contributor to Eremaea you can send Kellie Harman a message to her inbox or ask a moderator to send her an email. It would be interesting to know if she took any photographs. It looks like she may be holidaying in the area as she has also submitted lists for Kuranda, Mossman & Michaelmas Cay.

P.S. I can send her a message if you like.

Hi Colin,

That's a good point, but I'm unsure of the contact's details...
This morning I've walked the entire length of the Esplanade but no sight of the Laughing Gull, but a small group of about 10 Black-winged Stilts were a nice distraction...

Has anyone thought to email the person who claimed to see it?
