Yesterday's Portland pelagic was cancelled just before departure, due to a
late forecast cool change!  A few people went out on a very abbreviated
(and very rough) trip to Lawrence Rocks; anyone on line to tell us what
they saw?? 

A few of us went down to Cape Nelson & saw squillions of Short-tailed
Shearwaters and Australasian Gannets, a few gulls, Black-faced Cormorants,
and one lonely Black-browed Albatross. 

On the way home, we (Stuart Dashper, Susan Myers & I) stopped in at Lake
Martin on the Cressy-Beeac Road.  There we were slightly astonished to see
10 Brolgas (usually only one or two).  Also saw 15+ Cape Barren Geese, a
few Gull-billed Terns, 1000s of Australian Shelducks, etc... 

(BTW:  All locations mentioned are in southwestern Victoria, Australia.)
