To add to the picture of inland strays consequent upon Tropical Cyclone Oswald 
- At least four Sooty Terns have been handed in to a wildlife carer in the 
Lockyer Valley over the last few days, with four more seen flying seemingly 
healthily and happily over a dam at Helidon. As previously mentioned, a 
Wedge-tailed Shearwater cruised by at Abberton on Monday and another was seen 
between Helidon and Toowoomba later in the day. At least four sick or dead 
Wedge-tailed Shearwaters have also been taken in to the same wildlife carer, 
along with 3 White-tailed Tropicbirds. Five frigatebirds (sp?) were reported 
from Umbiram a little west of Toowoomba. One expired petrel has also been 
delivered to the aforesaid carer. Investigations as to its identity are still 
continuing. Bill JollyAbbertonHelidon, Qld
