Hi Ken,

yes, you are perfectly correct.

that record does still, of course, stand  -  that's why I mentioned the Cairns 
region, because I knew of this BTG having been seen in TSV at that time.

maybe I shouldn't have used the word 'region', and perhaps the word 'district' 
instead would have been better?

I certainly didn't mean to include TSV when I mentioned the Cairns region...

just as an aside, does anyone on here know if Far Nth Qld (FNQ) covers the area 
from TSV, and everything to the north?

I think that this is correct, but I am very happy to be corrected because I 
would like to know for sure.

I have always thought that North Qld (NQ) is the zone southward of TSV to 
include Bowen, Whitsundays, Mackay etc...

happy birding everyone!!

Hello all,
Not that I saw it my self but I'm pretty sure that there was a record of
Black tailed Gull in Townsville in 2002. So there is at least one other
record of BTG in North Queensland. I remember the bird clearly as I had
just moved away from Townsville when it was recorded.
