We've been receiving reports for a month of large numbers of beach washed
shearwaters. It started with Wedge-tailed in northern New South Wales where
'thousands' we found beached at Minniewater. Later thousands at Seal Rocks -
Tea Gardens and last week Palm Beach. Now we're told large numbers of
Short-tailed have come ashore around Kempsey.

This doesn't bode well for NSW shearwaters. Have any birdwatchers come
across large numbers of beached birds in the last month? Is NSWNPWS already
looking at this?
