Yeah, g'day Roger
We saw our first Cape Petrel on Sydney pelagics, from our notes, in 2009 and 
2010.  Last Thursday, we saw one as it flew around the whale-watching vessel we 
took from Coffs Harbour giving much better looks than we've had before.
While the whales did not perform very well the trip was worth it for the 
birdwatchers on board.
Other birds identified out of Coffs:
Fairy Prions; lots of pairs, one group of about 6
Yellow-nosed Albatross
Two other Albatross that we could not be sure of - possibly Shy and Grey-headed
Gannets; lots
Silver Gulls
Crested Tern

The conservation battle is never finally won; the development battle is.
