Hi All,

This week a juvenile Hooded Plover and a red-billed tern (?Arctic?) in breeding plumage were seen during the course of regular shorebird surveys of the Noosa estuary on Tuesday, June 15. The tern was not seen again, but the plover was still there yesterday. Both birds were photographed by Clive Allen, a regular member of my team of observers. I was not present.

If birders attempt to see the bird/s, please ensure that the welfare of the bird remains your priority.

The plover was seen in several places in the smallish estuary on Tuesday and Wednesday. It moved around with the tide changes. There is a free public telescope mounted at the end carpark at Noosa Woods, which is accessed through Hastings Street.
