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.

on shore: Black-shouldered Kite, White-bellied Sea-Eagle, Nankeen Kestrel, 
Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo; Indo-Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins (inshore)

Thanks a lot to the SOSSA team!
