Cape Schanck is not a bad location for seabirds - on the heel of the
Mornington Peninsula, Vic.
Particularly on the third day of a strong Southerly blow which shifts the
birds to the north side of Bass Strait.
In these conditions you need to wear your thermals - it gets downright
sub-antarctic.  Where I learned Wanderer, Shy and Black-browed
Albatrosses, quite a long time ago.
