Hi birders,
Further to Graham's message below, and Tun Pin Ong's of the other day:-

I went down to Boat Harbour today, getting there on low tide about 1030. Bumped into Ray Gobbe and we staked out the rocks together for 3+ hours. Birds roosting again as noted below, plus Pied Oystercatcher, Eastern Reef Egret, an adult Kelp Gull, and Crested Terns.

No sight or sound of Tattler, so started going back to cars. However, checking back towards the northern end of the rocky peninsula from the cliffs opposite, there it was, head under wing! Well spotted Ray. We back-tracked and got close enough for great views, by scope and binos. It finally had enough of us and shifted further along, calling as it went. Back again on the cliff opposite, we saw it again.
Anyone going, check from here before going round the bay.

Happy birding
Peter Madvig
