Hi all,

Did the circuit of beaches and headlands around Elizabeth Bay, as far north as 
Harrington and as far south as Mungo Brush, to no avail (in terms of vagrant 
penguins anyway). I visited a few places that Steve wasn't able to get to 
yesterday but no clues I'm afraid. There were quite large schools of baitfish 
off Elizabeth / Seven Mile Beaches that were 100's of metres long, attended 
only by a few gulls and terns. Plenty of food around for a famished Ferdinand.

I did manage to see Australia's southernmost Beach Stone-curlews (Old Bar) and 
Radjah Shelduck (Bombah Point, Myall Lakes) during the course of the day. A few 
Double-banded Plovers at Harrington also, along with some PGPs with full black 
suit on.
