Hi All,

I'm just going over recent sandbank counts for Caloundra, SEQld.

Our winter population of Double-banded Plover (DBPL) has been more or less
20, although we had one count of 40 back in May.
On 2.8.01, we had 25  DBPL in breeding plumage and 2 in non-breeding.
On 9.8.01 every one of the 24 was in breeding plumage.
Yesterday, 16.8.01,  we had only 7 DBPL, and all were in breeding plumage.

I'd be interested to hear if anyone in NSW or VIC, or even in NZ is starting
to see a change of numbers of DBPL.
