Hi Folks,
The Laughing Gull has re-located to the Cairns Esplanade this week and was still there this afternoon (30/1/09) when we looked at 2.30, it was with a group of Silver Gulls. Plenty of Grey-tailed Tattler, Lesser and Greater Sandplover, Curlew Sandpiper, Great Knot, Whimbrel, Bar-tailed Godwit, a Grey phase Reef Egret, Striated Heron, Little Egret, Little Tern (6), Gull-billed Tern, Crested Tern and a pair of Pied Oystercatchers. A bonus on the way home was a white phase Grey Goshawk swooping down over the highway near Yule Point (south of Port Douglas). It landed beside the road and gave us good looks as we drove past, not a common sight in these parts of Far North Queensland.
