 Hi Netters,
            Sunday 27/5/2001 with Jim Valentine. All birds seen over the sea.
            Black-browed Albatross        2         Sea-Eagle              2 imm
            Gannet                       30         Kestrel                1
            Silver Gull                 200+        Whistling Kite         1
            Crested Tern                  1         White-necked Heron     1
            Caspian Tern                  1         White-faced Heron      5
                                                    Little Pied Cormorant  1
            Humpback Whale                2
            Highlights:- The two imm Sea-Eagles unable to pick up a big fish.
                         The Humpback Whales breaching high into the air.
The larger of the two lifting out until only a tip of the tail was in the
water. The noise when re-entering the water echoed back off the high cliffs.
            Not a highlight:- With the big swell crashing against the rocks,
spray 15m high, to see a rock fisherman hit by a big wave, disappearing and
then washed back over the rocks and only just managing to save himself from
going into the sea.

All the Best
