Birds were not focused whatsoever. Stayed in groups wide apart. About in half of observation time, a small group of 5 birds started to chirp. I assumed this was the call for all of the other birds to come together but nothing ensued. A very uneventful morning.
disturbance - Unknown (7:10 - 8:00)
(flee bluff or beach, fly off water)
About a dozen or more birds hung out on the beach walking and swimming close to shore. They started to fly in circles over us until they took off in the direction of marina/Tolmie Park. They were upset. Only a few came back hanging out away from shore. No feeding. Tide was going out.
1 bird with gunnel flew to burrow 1 but veered off right in front of the burrow at 9:02. At 12:15 I was at the beach. 4 birds swam with gunnels. There were a total of 18 birds. 1 delivery to A-1 at 12:21, 1 delivery to C-1 at 12:14, and 1 delivery to C-1 at 12:17. Apparently this was "lunch". At least we know the birds are getting fed.
