Bird Watching Lady Musgrave Island

Lady Musgrave Island is the southern most island of the Bunker Group of islands and also part of the region known as the Capricorn Bunker Group which contains 73–75 percent of all seabird biomass of the entire Great Barrier Reef.

Lady Musgrave Island is identified as a significant seabird breeding island that provides habitat for thousands of nesting seabirds including the white-capped noddy terns that nest in abundance in the Pisonia trees whilst bridled terns, black-naped terns and silver gulls nest on the ground in more open areas closer to the beach.
