Hi again all

Also on the way back into Australian waters I saw Barau's Petrel on 5 consecutive days with 2 on one day. This included one bird in Australian waters 90 nm SW of Cape Leeuwin. I will write a submission to BARC. If accepted I think this will be the 3rd Australian record although I get the impression that they will be regular out there.

I am posting my trip report that details this and other sightings on my trip.

I will try and publish my sighting in various places and will post when and where they are.

If you want to write to me directly you will get a quicker reply if you write to

All the best
