 Hi Netters,
            Birds seen to-day 19/7/2001 with Steve Anyon-Smith at Wattamolla
in the Royal N/P south of Sydney. 
            Black-browed Albatross        25 
            Shy Albatross                  1
            Yellow-nosed Albatross         4
            Fluttering Shearwater       1000+
            Gannet                        30
            Crested Tern                  15
            Silver Gull                  200+
            Pied Cormorant                 1
            Little Pied Cormorant          3
            Sooty Oystercatcher            2
            Pelican                        1
            White-breasted Sea-eagle       1
            Peregrine Falcon               1
            Little Penquin                 1  (heard)

            Fur Seal                       1
            A small mystery with regards the Fluttering Shearwaters.
Althought the vast majority were flying north to south close to shore a
small minority out to sea were flying south to north. All the albatross were
flying north to south with approx 75% of Black-browed Albatross being immature.

All the Best
