We participated on both Wollongong pelagics this past weekend.
The best two birds were a (probable) Cook's Petrel and a Westland Petrel (both
birds were photodocumented, the images will be discussed and reports will be
submitted to BARC).
Moreover, we had: Little Penguins, Great-winged (Gray-faced) Petrels (some of
which with brown faces), Wedge-tailed, Flesh-footed, Sooty, Short-tailed,
Fluttering and Hutton's Shearwaters; Wandering Albatross complex: 1 Wandering,
1 possible Tristan, 1 possible Antipodean, several Gibson's; Black-browed and
Campbell Albatrosses; Shy and White-capped Albatrosses; Wilson's Storm-petrels;
Australasian Gannets; Little Pied and Great Cormorants; Australian Pelicans;
Sooty Oystercatcher; Pomarine, Arctic and Long-tailed Jaegers; Kelp and Silver
Gulls, Crested Terns; Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins (offshore); Short-beaked
Common Dolphins; Risso's Dolphins; an unidentified big whale, an unidentified
Fur-Seal, Short-finned Sunfish and an unidentified Shark.
