    1. I remember a birder describing one as a big tern with a red carrot for a nose. I didn’t realise how widespread the species is until seeing a photo of one from Australia.

      1. I had one last summer when I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise and didn’t need to look away from the viewfinder despite it not being a regular location for them. They seem to be spreading up and across the peninsula.

      2. Many of our birding bookings are 20ish years old, and it is quite noticeable how locations and spread has changed especially for sea birds

      3. I notice that having moved a little to the north and to the other side of the peninsula. Great Egrets are also more common around here than they were a decade ago
