Hi all,

Yesterday morning I was at North Mole which is at Fremantle Port, Western
Australia and saw Wilson's Storm-Petrels very close to shore, coming as
near as 30 m from the groyne. Max. numbers together was 3 birds.  North
Mole is a popular fishing spot and they might have been attracted by the
'stuff' the anglers could have thrown into the water. I have never seen any
storm-petrels so close to land.

There were also Southern Skuas about and one individual that came very
close was seen to be moulting its primaries from the outer ones going
