Gooday all,
Received this message while on holidays, would anyone like to comment on the
Black Swans at sea. I have seen them at Brisk Bay but fairly close to the
shoreline. They must be pelagic Black Swans to go out so far!

> Hello Jon,
> Last Wednesday, 28/03/2001, Pam and I were swimming at the Stinger net.  I
saw about 6 large birds, black coloured with long necks on the surface of
the sea about 1 k from me.
> Peter is sure they were black swans.  Pam wasn't wearing her glasses  so
couldn't see a thing.  Do swans go this far out?
>   Thanks for your E-mail 25 March.  That day at Mt Luce people tried to
take photos of the mystery  bird.  We are not certain whether or not they
succeeded.     We  didn't try to describe that one as we thought we'd better
leave it to  people with more experience in bird anatomy.
>    Have a good holiday.
>            Pam and Peter G.
