Hi everyone,
Further to the report by Rohan Clarke of a Common Diving Petrel wreck.  My
parents reported 30 from 'their' small section (<1 km) of beach at Kilcunda
(just east of Western port Bay) last week.  Also a  small number of Fairy
Prions and one Diving Petrel type bird that looked sufficiently different
to get a no conclusive ID mark from them.
Best Wishes
John Boyce
