Hello all,
 I have had a few enquiries re the SIPO (South Island Pied Oystercatcher) at
Clontarf/Woody Point, SE Queensland.

Unfortunately, the SIPO seems to be making itself less conspicuous these days,
In spite of regular inspections of the usual locations I have only seen it once
since 4/9/01.
That was on 3/11/01 at Pelican Park.
I have had a report from Florence and David Redhead that they observed it at
Crockatt Park, Woody Point, on 11/11/01.
I have visited that spot several times since but have had no luck.

The numbers of Pied Oystercatchers did seem to drop off for a while but now
appear to be building up again, 40+ last visit to Crockatt Park.

I will endeavour to continue to monitor the SIPO sights and will report any

Other interesting sightings from the same area indicate that the Little and
Common Terns are returning.
