Dear all,

There are some images of Blacktip Reef Sharks taking Tern chicks from a bit
further north of the site in recent discussion. You can see the pics at
SeaPics here:

The note accompanying the images says: "*Blackfin or blacktip reef shark,
Carcharhinus melanopterus, seizes a chick of greater crested tern or swift
tern, Thalasseus bergii or Sterna bergii, that has been washed out into the
sea as the rising tide threatens to engulf the eroding remains of Turu Cay,
Torres Strait, Queensland, Australia*"

I have submitted some questions to those involved in the previous discussion
but received no response as yet.
