There may also be another more recent record of Grey Phalarope!! 
And this record would have to go down as the ultimate grip off, for  
many on board the last Wollongong boat trip, 24th November.  While we  
were all looking at 2 Little Shearwater's from the bow of the boat, 
Lindsay Smith and others were on the top deck SCREAMING something 
about 2 small birds that they could not identify, unfortunately being 
very preoccupied we took no notice. 
Lindsay called me on Monday very excited, pointing out that he had 
managed to work out the identity of the two birds he saw "they were 
GREY PHALAROPE".  I had forgotten all about the crys for others to  
look at these birds, assuming that he must have been looking at a  
Mottled Petrel, that was also around at the time.  So there we have it, 
I am completely gripped and I'm sure that many others are too. It was  
only those on the upper deck that resisted looking at either the  
Little Shearwater or the Mottled Petrel that were rewarded with Grey  
Full marks go to Lindsay Smith
