Hi,Paul Walbridge here,paid Pt.Danger in southern QLD.a visit today 31/1/99,with notable sightings being 6 Streaked Shearwaters and an adult White tailed Tropicbird.While the Tropicbird was a bonus bird (we do get them here occasionally) the Shearwaters could be expected to hang around the area for the next couple of months.A couple of tips for anyone local or anyone passing through wishing to see the ' Streakeds' ;a)bring a scope,b)wait for the run-out tide from the Tweed River.Shearwaters sometimes congregate here in their thousands at this time of year mainly due to several species of engraulids,or bait-fish massing around the Tweed mouth and Streaked Shearwaters are quite often present sometimes quite close in.A Buller's Shearwater was present at this site just a couple of days ago and is also seen here often when these conditions prevail.Hope some of you manage to visit this site soon and if there happens to be a good S.E. blow while your there,you might pick up a bonus bird or two.Good birding,Paul.
