 While the Werribee Wagtails were at Point Addis on Tuesday October 9th.
there were two more interesting observations.
 1. On the  cliffs nearer to Bell's Beach we watched a pair of rosellas
going in and out of a wide crack in the cliff face.  Is it possible they
were nesting there?  On the cliff face nearer to Anglesea another Rosella
was sitting on a ledge about 2 metres below the top, seemingly enjoying the
sun in a sheltered spot,  have others observed this behaviour?
2. Far out to sea we saw a raft of bird , too distance to see any
distinguishing features.  They appeared to be black, in a very tight group
and on the surface of the water.  I am correct in assuming they would be
shearwaters?  We did not record this as a sighting.
