Population changes, Short-tailed Shearwaters at Griffiths Island, Vic

Hi folks, I’m looking for a bit of help with ebird or some other source.

A work colleague has asked me to see if I can find out whether the
population of STSs on Griffiths Island (at Port Fairy in Victoria) has
changed over the past five years or so. It seems that there’s been an
increased effort been put into fox control over the past few years, and
he’s wondering if there’s been any noticeable difference in the population
of STSs.

I found that on eBird there’s a hotspot for Griffiths Island, but I’m
having some trouble finding a way of getting the data out. There have been
85 checklists submitted to eBird over the past 10 years, but I can’t seem
to find a way of finding the counts of STSs for those lists (along with
dates). Can anyone help me out?

Also, if anyone knows of any other work or studies done that would give us
an understanding of population changes there, that’d be fantastic.

You can respond either to the list or directly to me.
