Additional comments? - Submitting this as Cucullatus as this is the one that is in the Prom Beach Quest. This pair was further down Squeaky Beach, the second pair on seen on this beach! One bird was happily playing out near the water with pedestrians passing close by. The other (see last pic) was hidden up in a fenced off part of the sand dune, spotted with binoculars by my 7 year old daughter! Photo was taken from a distance of 50m or more.

Additional comments? - Adding as Cucullatus not Rubricollis as there is a Quest for Cucullatus! Photos taken from distance. This pair on Squeaky Beach watching many walkers pass by in front of them. It was a surprise to see them on such a popular beach. Try and find the other bird in the last pic!

Additional comments? - At Picnic Bay, taken from a safe distance of around 50m so as to not disturb the birds. My father spotted these with binoculars. They are very well camouflaged and easy to miss.
