Bird still present up until today 30 January.  Bird roosts across dam to left 
of Caravan Park Boat Ramp (first turn to left as you enter).  Bird can be seen 
roosting with other gulls and pelicans etc. with a good scope from the Boat 
Ramp and elsewhere. Bird visits boat ramp occasionally when fish cleaned by 
fishers returning (Pelicans and Gulls come in from around the lake).  Good 
shots obtained today from about 8 metres on the ramp from the car.Also visits 
shoreline in dam park day area (toilets and BBQ's etc.) - seen twice in this 
area over 3 days, once in afternoon Tuesday about 3.30pm and today at 10.0am, 
so not all that regular in its movements. Occasionally flies around last boat 
ramp at end of dam road past caravan park and has obviously been seen here too. 
 Seen flying at this location today at 7.00am. Only seen at roost on Wednesday 
and flying towards last boat ramp via Spotting scope during 6 hours plus of 
attendance so patience is a virtue ... This info is gleaned from 3 observers - 
Good birding!Rob BurgoynePS: Barambah Caravan Park, 5 km away towards Murgon is 
cheaper than the caravan park at the dam itself - basic cabins are $47 
less!__________________________________________________Date: Tue, 21 Jan 2014

Hello all.

In case anyone is interested I have uploaded some images of the Lake
Barambah Franklin's Gull at 

The gull was reported on eremaea by Doug Armstrong and has been seen
regularly since then. Lake Barambah is 3 hours North West of Brisbane.
