Hi Craig,

Possibly of no relevance but some years ago I found a Laughing Gull at the far end of the footbridge near the shops at Lakes Entrance. ie on the opposite side of the lake. It was mixing with Silver Gulls. I photographed this bird and reported it to RAOURAC who accepted the record.

It may be worth checking this area.
