I don’t believe so Troy no. But worth checking as they do pop in now and again through the spring/summer months.

I think a few people went for it following me but nobody got it. I'm sure it will be back though over the summer. It was a heavy westerly when I went as I was hoping to see some distant sea birds. that's why I went.
