Masked boobies at Letterbox
The masked boobies have now returned to nest out at Letterbox. So far about 300 bird nests have been recorded, with another 100 or so still to tag. Please take care not to disturb the nesting birds when out walking in this area, they will protect their eggs and have very sharp beaks.
