We checked out the Woody Head, Back Beach and Shark Bay rock platforms this 
afternoon but did not locate the 'Black Tern'.

There were 8 Sooty Oystercatchers (including 2 juveniles) and 3 Pied 
Oystercatchers (an adult male had a band on his right leg), 12+ Little Terns (1 
breeding plumage, 2 with bands on right leg), 1 Lesser Sand Plover, 2 
Red-necked Stints and a Striated Heron at Back Beach.

Woody Head was relatively quiet with only one Common Tern among the Silver 
Gulls and Crested Terns.

One Double-banded Plover, 3 Lesser Sand Plovers and 14+ Red-necked Stints were 
at Shark Bay.

A Brahminy Kite, 2 adult White-bellied Sea-Eagles honking loudly and a 
Whistling Kite added to the variety.

To add a little excitement to the afternoon we drove home through a severe 
thunderstorm.  The light show was magnificent.
