Just a note to inform people that the first ever banding of a Bullers 
Shearwater in Australia took place on December 18th 1995 on Cabbage Tree 
Island, off Port Stephens, NSW.

It was the forth record of Bullers Shearwater on the island, the others being 
April 1995, February 1992 and December 1960.  All but the earliest record were 
of birds found on the surface and not associated with a burrow.  To date the 
only other record of Bullers Shearwater on land comes from Montague Island, off 
Narooma, NSW, again in 1960.

The island is being fairly closely montiored for Gould's Petrel, so any further 
appearences of Bullers Shearwater will hopefully be detected.

If you have ay further questions then email me.
