After several delays, we finally had our inaugural pelagic off the Sunshine
Coast yesterday. We had a successful day, with the highlights being Buller's
Albatross (2) and a trifecta of storm-petrels - White-bellied Storm-Petrel
(2), Black-bellied Storm-Petrel (1) and Wilson's (2), but no sign of the New
Zealand Storm-Petrel seen off Southport. Plenty of Providence Petrels were
about. Conditions were ideal, with a gentle swell and a nippy
south-westerly. A plus for the trip was that with our 10m catamaran, the
Cat-A-Pult, it took just 1.5 hours to reach the continental shelf.
