This bird was still there today. That is on the eastern tip of Clonmel Island on the south side of Kate Tarney Entrance due south of Robertsons Beach east of Corner Inlet. Contrary to Clive Minton's and Susan Taylor's experience on Sunday today it was wary rather than confiding and instead of giving itself up, Rohan Clarke, Andrew Silcocks and I took 2.5 hours to find it. When we did it was on a sand-bar separated by a channel from the main peninsula. We drove ourselves in a boat hired at Port Albert but had some previous knowledge of the area which can be treacherous due to the shallow water, a myriad of islands among which to get lost, and in places long fetch. Conditions today were perfect, flat calm. Consensus on the identity of the bird is not yet achieved.
