  • Aleutian Tern at Farquhar Inlet, Old Bar reported by Liam Murphy on 11-12-2017
    This morning I located no less than 13 Aleutian Terns out on the sandflats of Farquhar Inlet, just north of Old Bar. It is one year and one week since I photographed two of this species at exactly the same location. The attached back-of-camera photo shows the distinct combination of bill shape, head pattern, forked tail and dark trailing edge to inner wing. Many more photos taken and will upload to eBird and Australian Twitchers Facebook page later. Access is easiest by parking along the road to Mudbishops Point reserve and wading across a few shallow channels out towards the north-east of the flats. Please consider that the adjacent dunes are home to a Little Tern breeding colony and many waders are also using the area. A BARC submission will be prepared. (Moderator's Note: A remarkable record of what would be a first for Australia, notwithstanding the report from this time last year. MR)
