At lunchtime today, from Cape Solander in Botany Bay NP a Sooty
albatross was spotted gliding close to the water surface, then wheeling
with wings vertical before beginning the next glide, it was quite close
to shore with an obviously larger wingspan than the many Aust Gannets at
similar distance offshore.  Huge numbers of other smaller sea birds,
were seen, but were too far off for ID with 8x42 binos.
