Have been out to the shelf marlin fishing the last two days. The water 
temperature is back up to 24 degrees and becomming quite fishy.  The bird life 
is great, not lots of variety, but thousands of wedge tailed shearwaters around 
the bait schools.  Also seen 1 Wandering Albatross (imm), 1 Gould's Petrel, 3 
Great Winged Petrels, 1 Fluttering SW, 2 Pomarine Jaegers, 50 or so Fleshy 
footed SWs, 40 odd Aust Gannets.  There was (and usually is) a couple of 
unidentified petrels and shearwaters (much white in underwing) seen at 
distance.  Until I become competant at their behaviour such distant sightings 
will always be unidentified.
