Tasman Peninsula

We had a trip to the Tasman Peninsula today which was generally pretty disappointing. Eaglehawk Neck was good but Port Arthur was a waste of time, not what I expected at all. One or two birds of interest though, including several yellow-tailed black cockatoos. I always enjoy seeing any of the black cockatoos and these birds showed particularly well.

Kelp gulls are as common in Tasmania as they are anywhere in Australia. The species is also common in New Zealand but I don't recall the New Zealand birds having quite such large bills as those in Tasmania.

These are Latham's snipe, only the second time I have seen the species.
