Andy Jensen, Stuart Pickering, Tom Tarrant and I spent yesterday afternoon 
sea-watching off Point Lookout (North Stradbroke Island, SEQ) in 20-25 kt S to 
SEs. This was my first trip there - I'm more of a pelagic boat trip than 
seawatching from land fan!   However, there were lots of birds including 10+ 
Yelllow-nosed and 1 Black-browed Albatross, 15-20 Prion sps. (3 or 4  in the 
near surf were all certainly Fairy Prions), 2 Giant Petrel Sps, c 15 Common 
Noddies and a few Fluttering Shearwaters, large nos. of Aus Gannets, Crested 
Terns, Silver Gulls etc. Add to that all the Hump-backed Whales and 
Bottle-nosed Dolphins which were constantly in view - it made for a pleasant 
Sunday afternoon. SEabird wise - the views are what you would expect from land 
but I was genuinely impressed with the no. of birds (for SEQ I should add). The 
signs look good for some winter stuff on the Southport trip on the 17th July.
