Hi folks, went up to Redcliffe today with Dave Stewart to look for Bob's SIPO, after trying unsuccessfully yesterday with Andrew Stafford (arrived too late). We found the bird on our second look at the sea-wall at Pelican Park, with 3 Pieds at approx. 1200hrs. It then flew off towards Houghton Highway as Bob suggested but I kept tracking it and it landed amongst a group of Pied Oystercatchers on the last groyne before the Houghton Bridge. It was here that it was most approachable, just head south west from Pelican Park back towards the bridge and park on the side of the road, way before the bus stop I might add. There is a small park here with a walk-way going through it. We observed it here and left it resting, from about 1200-1215hrs.
This bird was showing some degree of wear and tear and judging by the amount of dusky coloration up the bill is some way off being an adult. This also should discount it from being the same bird as the Manly individual. One other point of interest which Bob Inglis didn't mention, there is 3-5mm missing from the upper mandible!!
Cheers - Paul Walbridge.
