SOSSA is pleased to announce that it has updated its website, so please have a look. The address is

We have updated many of the links and content on the site and have plans to introduce further features.

One of the main changes however, is the addition of a forum for discussions and photos of sea birds. The forum can be accessed via the home page or by the following link There isn't much content there at the moment, however this will change in the weeks ahead.

Viewing and using the forum is free and open to all. We see it as complementing Birding-Aus, as it can be used to take discussions further, by allowing the hosting of photos and data (copyright remains with the poster). David James has kindly posted an example of this and taken the Red-billed Gull v Silver Gull discussion a bit further by adding photos. You can find it on this link

You only need to register if you want to post, all forum content s available for viewing by the general public. As a note to anyone attempting to join, some usernames may get caught up in our anti spam software, so if you have any trouble registering, please email Please be patient if emailing this address, however we will endeavour to rectify any problems as soon as possible.

A few things important to note on using the forum,

1. Photos can be a maximum of 1024 pixels at their widest point and a maximum of 300kb to be able to be uploaded to the site. 2. Currently, advertising of any kind and promotion of other websites is not permitted, except for personal, non-commercial photo galleries in the posters signature. Non-SOSSA trips are not permitted to be advertised, although trip reports from other pelagics are welcome. All attempts to circumvent this will be deleted and the posters banned.

There are a number of other rules of the site, similar to those found on other forums and users must agree to these before they can post. They can be found under the sites terms and conditions.

We hope the site will become a useful resource for people interested in seabirds and that you enjoy it.

Any comments or queries are welcome at 

Thank you from the SOSSA Team
