Was at Mistral Point, Maroubra for a couple of hours this morning with
Ray Gobbe (who stayed after I had to leave, so I'm not sure what he saw
that I didn't),
Highlight was an older looking Wandering Albatross in nice and close. I
only managed to get Black-browed, Yellow-nosed and Wandering Albatross
for my mornings efforts, Ray had Shy earlier, completing the set.
Also present were a few Wedge-tailed and fluttering Shearwater, and I
had what I'm fairly certain was a Sooty Shearwater as I arrived. Only
had binocular views, but I got the shiny white panels on the underwing,
and it definitely looked like a Sooty. Several gannets and the usual
terns, gulls and kestrel were present.
This weekend is currently looking pretty good, and I'm sure I'll see
some of you there when I can get down on Sunday morning.
Trip report from my Victoria trip will follow soon. Some photos here

who just cannot wait. :)
