Little Tern: We haven t seen any but John Newman reports that on 21 December 2003, he found a pair nesting on Sand Island, Queenscliff in the southern part of the Bay. A single pair has bred at this site or nearby, perhaps annually since 1998, (see Australian Bird Watcher 17: 346-348.

 Little Tern - 2 pairs nested in the Moolap (Geelong) saltworks (2 and 3 eggs) in December - outcome of nests unknown (eggs gone) but saltworks staff say the terns are still flying about in the area
