A quick visit to Jam Jerrup on the eastern side of Westernport Bay provided an opportunity to observe adult and juvenile Crested Terns. I also observed approximately 20 Royal Spoonbills, 4 Pied Oystercatchers, 6 Pelicans, and several groups of 10 or more Eastern Curlew which were all flying north.

I was quite surprised to come across an Australian Kestrel perched on a cliff top at Gunnamatta surf beach. It had a spectacular view of the waves and panorama of Bass Strait but I think it had its eyes on something else.

Marine park accessed via Point Nepean national park, Hooded Plovers nesting on the beach and quite a few Australian Gannets flying past at regular intervals. Dolphins are regular visitors and can be seen surfing the occasional waves that enter through the heads.
