Dear John, re Grey-headed Albtrosses

Up to 1995 the NSW Ornithological Records Appraisal Committee recognised
about 18 records of Grey-headed Albatross for NSW of which 15 were for
the period up to 1981 and some of those earlier records may be doubtful,
and three records since, the latest being a beachcast bird at Mona Vale
5/8/1986. I don't think there were any records for 1996 but that report
is not yet out!. So the fact that there have been 4 or 5 records this
winter is unusual. However the NSWORAC has not received any submissions
on these birds as yet so they may not all be accepted records in the
long term!.
