Arrival back in Brisbane was cooler than at Broome, admittedly it was 23:00hrs and raining but it had that feel about it, "you know" like late September, the wind is blowing, the trees are swaying and the leaf litter is staring to appear. Upon speaking with Stuart, even he quoted " its very autumnal of late". I fancied looking for some Wandering Tattlers and decided to head up to Mooloolaba. An area of rocky headland and beach north of Brisbane that has form from days gone by of being a reasonably reliable site for Wandering Tattlers but also has a nice beach with some winning surf.
It took a while "wandering" around the rocky outcrop and checking the rock pools but "fortune did favour the brave" today and a single Wandering Tattler was present (photo above) Mooloolaba isn't that far from Caloundra and so could be one of the birds from there, who knows ? but at least it was a Wanderer at a new site for me.
