A number of Great Shearwaters were seen off Portland on Sunday 3rd April on
the monthly BOCA pelagic. A full report will be coming out soon but I
thought it worth alerting the birding community. Possibly 8 individuals were
seen and up to 6 at one time. They approached and settled when burlying.
The first bird was seen a few km south of Lawrence Rocks and the main group
out at the continental shelf edge. Anecdotal evidence from the skipper is
that similar birds have been seen recently just off Lawrence Rocks.
