disturbance - Dogs present (8:34 - 8:40)
(flee bluff or beach)
Two large dogs came to site, a bird left a burrow, two pairs of birds did three consecutive fly-bys while dogs present, dogs left at end of survey period.
Two different birds had fish, but none were delivered that I could see. A group of 3-4 birds flew over me (hiding behind the stump/driftwood several times), but did not go into the bluff. Later I did not see any birds with fish, so I actually think a fish delivery happened without me noticing.
It is so difficult to find a place to sit where we are not a disturbance, but where we can see the burrows and all of the activity in all directions.
