A couple from the Gold Coast

Post by Nicholas Matheson-Kozakis » Mon Jun 28, 2010 9:56 pm

Last week I was lucky enough to spend it in a beachfront unit at Bilinga near Tugun. Although I saw birds each day, the only new ones for winter were as follows:

Australian gannet (23 June)
Little terns (most days)
comb crested jacanas (25 June near Gooding/Nerang-Broadbeach Rd roundabout)

and may I add some humpbacks on 21 June only. I was quite excited about these as I haven't yet seen evidence of their northward migration from our Nobby Beach unit. I'd recently read in the GC Bulletin that they were actually about 10km out to sea, so I was quite excited when I saw them this day! :D
