Hi All.
Spent a couple of hours today seawatching from Soldier's Pt., c. 100km north of Sydney with interesting results.
About 20 Albatross seen, with 7 each of Black-browed and Yellow-nosed identified. Also a single Giant Petrel, prob. a Southern. Finally, a Skua which may have been a South Polar as it had a light coloured head, neck and body, contrasting with darker wings. But, of course, there is never an expert around when you need one. So I'll just laeve that as a Skua, spp. unknown.
