Thanks Dion, I've gone through all my recent Sea Mount trip birds and all seem 
to be standard White-necked Petrels. The differences are extremely subtle it 
would seem and to do with proportionate sizes of bill, wing and tail, maybe 
really good photos will show this, maybe not.
On a different note, Brian Russell and myself visited the Sunshine Coast 
headlands yesterday to see how the Wandering Tattlers were colouring up. First 
stop Caloundra South Headland, fishermen + dogs = 0 Tattlers. Next stop our 
next favoured headland to the north Pt. Cartwright, fishermen + dogs = 0 
Tattlers. So, on to Alexandra Headland in between, where we located 8 roosting 
together at high tide in the centre of the headland with very little to disturb 
them, 7 coming into breeding plumage and one non starter which should over 
winter. Judging by it's weight compared to the other fatties I don't think it's 
going any other place soon. Anyone wishing to seen these stunning waders, they 
were located from the top of the headland looking down on the rocks below from 
where the steps lead down and just to the left of there. Approach carefully and 
slowly and you should be well rewarded. Cheers - Paul W.
