Hi everyone

The explosion of Short-tailed Shearwaters continues down the east and
south-east coasts. I've been observing STSW over Corio Bay during the last
two days - every time I've looked there have been birds visible. I wasn't
here over the weekend so I'm not sure when they arrived here.

Yesterday I could only find birds flying. This afternoon there were about a
dozen swimming close to the shore near the shell refinery, and all the way
up into Limeburners' lagoon. I haven't walked the shoreline but I haven't
seen any dead birds washed up in the places I've looked. My wife saw about
60 beachwashed birds on Ocean Grove beach on Saturday - she thought they
were all the same species.
