Hi all
after not seeing the Noddy during a very quick look last week on my way home from Warriewood (when the tide was completely wrong), I went and had another look this morning. The Black Noddy is still at Long Reef - at 7am this morning (17 April) it was fishing in the surf just off the seaward end of the reef. Also seen on the reef flat many Ruddy Turnstones & Red Necked Stint - at least 5 in breeding colours - 12 Sooty Oystercatchers, 1 Golden Plover, 20+ Double Banded Dotterel (Adults & Immature birds with buffy coloured heads) and 4 Grey Tailed Tattler. The tide was high today at 10am or thereabouts so was coming in when I was there and was over the lowest parts of the reef flat as I left at 7:15, so I had to paddle back to land (I was expecting this and had my crummiest shoes on), so morning visits looking better over the next few days.
