Fairy Terns were first recored breeding at Wallagoot Lake  in
Mid-November 1994 when two pairs nested with Little Terns, Pied
Oystercatchers, Crested Terns and Caspian Terns rearing 3 chicks, they
have occurred there subsequently. This information was published in
B.Jones 1995 Aust. Birds 29, 10-13, in the NSW Annual Bird Reports
(published by the NSWFOC in their Journal "Australian Birds")and in the
Eurobodalla Natural History Society Annual Reports. There are
birdwatchers who live in NSW & publish information, subscriptions for
these group's publications are available!
