I spent last Wednesday out on a site near Pottsville in northern NSW and found an astonishing number of dead short-tailed Shearwaters. I had to walk no more than about 15m between bodies and the beach stretched as far as the eye could see in both directions, as did the carcases. All Short-tailed Shearwaters though. A quick scan out to see indicated that many more were still passing through, most very close to the beach.
