Not a record but an observation. Back in the mid thirties whilst holidaying
at The Entrance, Tuggerah Lakes on the central coast of NSW, the long beach
to the north of the lake entrance, which runs almost to Norah Head was
literally covered with the decomposing bodies of shearwaters.This would have
been during the school holidays, Dec /Jan 1934/35. At the time this was
regarded as a natural event beyond our knowledge or understanding . I have
seen similar events (though not so devastating ) from time to time , and
agree entirely with the explanation provided by Alan Morris
