Del Richards has asked me to put the following posting on birding-aus -

An immature Northern Giant-Petrel was picked up at sea off Low Isles off
Port Douglas on 31.July, 1999 (approx 16 degrees 30' South).  It was
taken to the Rainforest Habitat in Port Douglas where it later died.
Weight was 1.9 kg - bird was emaciated - usual weight apparenty about 3
kg.  It is now  being lodged with Queensland Museum.  Probably first
record for north Queensland.
