Hi - I walked the length of Fingal Beach near Tweed Heads this afternoon. I was 
checking the beach for a Little Tern colony (there are signs in the surf club 
car park about them possibly being around). I didn't find any little terns but 
I did find this bird sitting on the sand about 2km from the surf club. It was 
definitely alive. It looked to me like a Black Petrel (see attached an iPhone 
photo). I thought the heavy rain through the night and morning might have 
affected it,
