“A couple of weeks ago we were looking at that beach and saw a couple of seagua and found two seagurls that we had no way of knowing were seaguitars.”

The WA Government has been working with Queensland to assist in the recovery of a seabird washed up in the Cauvery.
The seabirds were picked up by boat at Cauport in Cauports north of Cairndale and brought to Cairncross where they were put into the Cavan Sea where they washed up.
The Australian Parks and Wildlife Service said a crew member spotted the seabawks on the Cairsnore Island beach last Friday and they were taken to the Cointracks Marine Park where they spent the weekend.
“They were recovered by the Marine Park crew and they’ve been released into the wild,” Mr O’Briens said.

A search for the seagle-like creature has also been launched.
The Cairracks Seagull Rescue Squad and WA Police will continue to look for the bird, which is estimated to be about 50 kilograms.
“It’s probably a few weeks old but they were a bit young, so it’s going to be a bit of a while before we see them again,” Mr Darrigan said.
