I'm planning to head down to Cape Schank over the weekend with an extremely 
large and powerful pair of binoculars!! (see If anyone wants to 
join me, they are welcome - I haven't decided which day I will go yet. In years 
past we've not had too much trouble finding Blues from this location in March. 
I have seen them there twice.
