there was one Cape Gannet paired with an Australasian Gannet at Wedge Light for
many years, but it has not been seen for 2 or 3 years now.

However there are Cape Gannets breeding on Lawrence Rocks off Portland, don't know how many because nobody has looked closely enough - I saw and photographed several during
a brief visit in 1993.

Mainly for our South African friends...

Wedge Light is in the south of Port Phillip Bay in Victoria, Australia. The city centre of Melbourne is just to the north of the bay.

See for an article on the gannets with a map of Port Phillip Bay.

Portland is a town in western Victoria.
