Hi all,

I've just returned from 3 weeks in north Qld, had a fabulous time (thanks especially to Maria & Alan Gillanders and Peter Cooper). Re the Laughing Gull: it was present on the Cairns Esplanade last Sunday at last light, amongst Silver Gulls opposite the RSL - this was at low tide. I then saw it again on Monday morning in front of the Lagoon swimming pool and here I was able to observe it from no more than 5 metres - binoculars weren't necessary! Tide was falling. This was despite not being able to find it on 18th Feb when I first arrived. As Peter Marsh wrote, well worth looking for along the Esplanade.
