The latest (2004 - Vol. 19) Nature in Eurobodalla
that I have lists WCHE status as 'now resident in small localised colonies'. It
includes records for 2004 from about half a dozen locations including one
from Bengello (also called South Broulee Beach), probably the same as the
population Dave is referring to, and a breeding record. Evidently they have
become established since the mid-late 1990s. I don't have all volumes of Nature
in Eurobodalla, but Volume 7 (1992) for example notes 'accidental - no records'.
