The sea had a 1M swell and there was a 10 knot South Easterly. We headed South 
East to 1 trawler which held most of the birds, but not the Gould's Petrels. We 
saw lots of cetaceans all day.
A good trip with birds all day. The highlights were undoubtedly the Gould's 
Petrels which were great and gave excellent views.
