Following Bob Inglis's idiosyncratic notification of the Artic Jaegar, and 
being  significantly jaegar-deprived, unsettled that 2007 had brought only one 
addittion to my Aussie life list, and stir-crazy from enduring over 500mm of 
rain over the past 4 weeks (yes, I know it's needed elsewhere, please, please 
take it) we headed down the mountain to Godwin Beach yesterday arvo.
  And searched the relatively small area without success for the jaegar, but 
enjoying nevertheless the impressive number of waders easily seen on the 
half-tide from the safey of the car. It was just good to be out in elements, 
wild as they were. One other Ausie jaeger-deprived birder arrived (Bob, you'll 
have to give less ambiguous messages) so we exchanged New Year's gretings. My 
simplistic jaeger-locating brain told me I needed to find some feeding terns 
and gulls so off to Bribie Is via Sandstone Point. We checked the Passage, 
Buckley's Hole sandbar, the surf beach at Woorim, and the Bribie Is RSL without 
finding any feeding terns/gulls or the jaeger. But we had a fun arvo out, and I 
was able to kick-start my year list.
