Hello everyone,

Trevor Ford reports that terns are still in high numbers in
Caloundra, if anyone is thinking of going this weekend. We have a
couple of extras in our boat tomorrow (Thurs), and I'll report on
what's out there. Trevor couldn't find White-Winged Black Terns in
any numbers, and so I'll let you know if we see them.

"I went to Caloundra yesterday and was really impressed with the spectacle of
so many terns - it would be difficult to argue with your estimate of up to
20k for Common.  Especially spectacular was watching them out at sea.  Terns
thinly spread everywhere, but here and there a concentration of fish would
have an attendant gathering of hundreds of terns.  About 40 Wedge-tailed
Shearwaters also."
