Still on the rock platform c. 300m east of Pt Franklin carpark. I was expecting 
to see other birders here when I took about the last spot in the carpark, but 
they must all be mountain bikers or hikers because I'm the only person looking 
at this magnificent bird. 

Pod of dolphins just off the rock platform as well. 

I was reluctant to get too close and stress the bird. 30-40m gave me a great 
view through bins, better through scope. I think this species has a fairly 
small circle of tolerance (= "confiding") but it would be good if people don't 
harass it. More people may get to see it and who knows, it eventually might get 
home to ... ???
