To whom should I direct an observation of shorebird disturbance. I live on a 
boat. We were recently anchored off the the high tide roosting sandspit near 
Inskip Point. There was a large flock of Sanderlings (I think) The flock was 
constantly in flight circling the the roost. Other larger waders were 
undisturbed.There was a kite-surfer using the sand island and shallows to learn 
how to fly her kite.(Whilst there is a very small sign requesting boaters to 
slow down in the area there is no other advice.)
