There's a Southport pelagic on this weekend which holds some promise. Already this week comes a report of a beachwashed Common Diving Petrel from North Stradbroke Island ( I think), only the second such record. Cheers - Paul Walbridge.
I think possibly, the recent southerly's may have pushed up a fair number of Common Diving Petrels up our eastern coast, judging by the number of sightings recently off Sydney and elsewhere. Has anybody any other explanations?
The 3 seperate individual Diving Petrels we saw last Monday from Magic Pt, Maroubra, were all heading down south. I think they breed on the Bass Strait Islands in winter. They are such marvelous little seabirds, especially by the way they fly.
