Hi All.
To add to Edwin's message of yesterday, spent 2 hours at Soldier's Pt, on the Central Coast, NSW looking at the Albatross.
Good numbers of Yellow-nosed and Black-browed and my first Shy of the season.  Plenty of Fluttering Shearwaters and a few Prions, none close.  A single Giant Petrel of undetermined specie (as usual). Also a single all dark Petrel or maybe Shearwater.
Numbers as follows:
Black-browed Albatross 25
Yellow-nosed Albatross 20
Shy Albatross 1
Unidentified Albatross ~15
Giant Petrel 1
Fluttering Shearwater 100's
White-fronted Tern 2
Gannets 10
Still waiting for my first Wanderer.
