Received from Martin O'Brien.  replies to him dorectly please.


A request for those people who have OLD records of Fairy Tern breeding
from Victoria.

I am documenting Fairy Tern breeding across the Victorian coast and am
particularly keen to have any old records people may have that have NOT
been atlassed.

An aim of securing these old records is to document the previously used
sites in Port Phillip and Corio Bays.  Fairy Terns no longer breed in Port
Phillip Bay and appear to have shifted to sites in Western Port and along
the Gippsland coast.

Any advice people may have is also welcome.  Note that I have access to
the BirdLine Victoria, Victorian Biodiversity Atlas and Birdata
information for the species, so it's the undocumented observations that
I'm keen to hear about.

Please respond directly to me.

cheers, Martin
