Hi Barbara,
                Thanks for organising the extra Eden pelagic on Saturday.
                From the upper cabintop we also saw what was presumably a  Black-bellied Storm-Petrel, white belly and rump, at 30m.
                 Also, two sightings of a possible Tahiti Petrel among the Short-tailed and occassional Sooty Shearwaters, ie very white belly sharply cutoff from black chin and throat, otherwise  dark underwings,dark back, seen at about 200m.Same approximate size as accompanying Shearwaters. The same as numerous Tahiti Petrels we've just seen on the Ashmore Reef trip.
                The Short-tailed Shearwaters were very hungry, two landed on the boat, and the Buller's Albatross ravenous, returning again and again to the stern for the shark liver chum.
