Hi netters.

The Fiordland Penguin was still at the site near Port Fairy last night
(24/1) at 1900 hours. As Tony Palliser said, site details will not be
released over the net, for fear of the bird being moved.

Regarding the Franklin's Gull, Ian Ashton reported a probable first year
bird at Sorrento jetty, c. 1600 h, Sunday 23/1/00. The bird was calling a
lot and Ian who has seen Laughing Gull at Eyre Bird Observatory, is pretty
sure the bird was a Franklin's.

With numbers of people going for the Penguin I am unaware of anyone who has
yet followed up Ian's report.
