Hi Bernie,
The directions remain unchanged from those posted on birding-aus about two and half weeks ago. The bird continues to be seen on the same short stretch of shoreline at Lake Wollumboula or roosting within the fenced-off Little Tern colony.

To access the site drive to the township of Culburra Beach (via Nowra), NSW. The main road into town is called the 'The Lake Circuit'. About halfway through town, to stay on this named road, you need to turn right (sounds odd but on checking a map it will make sense). Drive to the end of the 'The Lake Circuit' rd and there is a small carpark, picnic area and playground. Take the steps down to the lake (not the path that leads more directly to the beach), then walk south along the edge of the lake at the back of the beach. From the carpark it's about 450 m to the point were the bird has mostly been feeding - pretty much in line with the fenced off Little Tern colony. If it isn't there check amongst the roosting stint in the fenced-off Little Tern area.


Hi All
I am planning on flying up this weekend to search for the White rumped SP. I know the general location but would be very appreciative if someone can give me precise directions! I have always been overwhelmed by the great response to my requests so I will thank you in advance!

Kind regards
Bernie OKeefe
