I've also seen photos of Great-winged Petrel (both races) and White-faced 
Storm-Petrel from Georgina, plus Indian Yellow-nosed and Black-browed Alb and 
Flesh-footed Shear in various photos and footage from the documentary. Nothing 
too unusual in that, though 'Grey-faced' Great-wingeds seem to be relatively 
uncommon off the SW. A couple of good seabirders were due out on today's trip, 
so they will probably have a list.

My suspicion is that it will be pretty similar to Albany. It would be 
interesting to get out there but last I checked there were no charter boats 
based at Bremer, so for now it would be a relatively expensive experiment.
