A most forgettable day for birds with only 7 people turning up, not even
birds around a working trawler.
 List :-
Silver Gull             50
Kelp Gull               4
Crested Tern            15
Aus. Gannet             10
Arctic Jaeger           4
Pomarine Jaeger         1
Wedge-tail Shearwater   4
Short-tail Shearwater   1
Wilson's Stormpetrel    1
Providence Petrel       1
Water up to  24 C. but we had good views of Short-fin Pilotwhales (20)
and Bottle-nose Dolphin (100) and to liven up the event Capt. Carl spent
about an hour landing a 100 + kg Striped Marlin.
