Hi All

An 8.00-13.30 seawatch off Pt Lookout in medium strength (15-20 knot)
south easterlies on Sunday yielded just under 1000 Wedge-tailed, a few
birds shy of 100 Short-tailed and 1 Buller's Shearwater (all estimates
based on 15 minute counts conducted each hour) with a peak of 244
Wedgies passing between 11-12.00. 
4 Pomarine and 6 Artic Skuas also passed by although 2 beautifully
marked light phase Artics returned several times to put on spectacular
performances as they hunted terns off the point.

What's better than Shearwaters, Skuas, Pink Floyd on the iPod and crappy
flask coffee?

So many birds, so little time......
