Hi all

Yesterday I joined one of BirdsSA's pelagics from Pt McDonnell, nr Mt
Gambier, which produced the following:

Sooty Albatross
Yellow-nosed Albatross
Wandering Albatross
Black-browed Albatross
Shy Albatross
White-faced Storm-petrel
Wilson's Storm-petrel
Great-winged Petrel
Fleshy-footed Shearwater
Short-tailed Shearwaters
White-chinned Petrel
Cape Petrel
Common Diving-Petrel

The Sooty gave a good show flying right around and over the boat. I have put
a photo on my website.

And I didn't even get seasick!
