Should be a good trip off Wollongong this Sunday we hope, I understand
from Tony Palliser there is plenty of room.

There's some pretty good seawatching to be had off Sydney at the moment,
with the strong _offshore_ southwesterlies. Highlights of a watch today,
Thursday, off Maroubra were:
Behind a trawler this morning were 27 Black-browed, 4 Yellow-nosed, and
Shy Albatrosses, and a Brown Skua. Another 2 Shys and more of the other
albatrosses were also around, as were 2-3 giant petrels, but no
Lots of prions offshore (into three figures), about 10 of which came
Fifteen seabird species seen all told, and better than some pelagics
been on. Also a Swamp Harrier flew across the bay, and made a couple of
passes at some Fluttering Shearwaters.
If these winds keep up another day or two, it will be well worth a trip
a headland. Even if the winds drop, it may well be good.
