Wasn't there a similar big incident back in 1992 along the eastern coast? I
remember going around Long Reef (one of Sydney's northern beaches) and among
the hundreds of dead Short-tailed Shearwaters, saw one Sooty Shearwater
still alive. I gave it to a Life Saver to give it to WIRES as I could not
carry it with me on the bus back home at the time.
Is this a case of starvation?
