Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross

At the present time there is very little information relating to the
occurrance of the Atlantic form of Yellow-nosed Albatross in Australia besides
the recent sighting from WA.   I know of only two other records for Australia,
One well documented sighting from Wollongong 24th August 1986 and another
sight record from Portland 4th September 1994.

Please, does anyone know of any other records?  There is a possibility that
this nominate race may well become a distinct species in the future.  (Were
you fortunate enough to be on one of these pelagics?)
