With great weather, I have been marlin fishing on the shelf most days of the 
last week.  Many of the thousands of wedge tailed shearwaters that were present 
the week before have disappeared, with only a couple of hundred seen each day.  
I even went for five or six days straight without seeing any albatrosses, 
although I saw 2 wanderers today.  The only real notable sighting for me lately 
has been a single white tern feeding with a group of shearwaters about 5 days 
ago, otherwise there has been fleshy footed shearwaters, great winged petrels 
(becoming suddenly less common), 5 or so gould's petrels, a few probable 
fluttering SW's, Pomarine Jaegers (usually 2 or 3 each day), the usual dozen or 
so australian gannets on the way out and on the way home and a couple of sooty 
terns each day.
