Yesterday the much-sought-after Franklin's Gull was not at any of the following 

Barwon River, Ocean Grove
Barwon Estuary, Barwon Heads
13th Beach
Point Impossible
Point Addis
Anglesea River (downstream of Grt Ocean Road)
Anglesea surf beach
Airey's Inlet
Lorne foreshore or Pier area

OK that's not terribly helpful, but it suggests the bird is hiding well or has 
left the area.  The movements last week suggest it MAY have been heading west, 
so anyone along the Otways coast or further west might like to have a look at 
local gull spots.  There was a Franklin's Gull at Peterborough some years ago.

Has anyone else been looking for the gull in the last day or so?
