Highlights of Last Pelagic Trip

Bill & Els sent in the following info. on the pelagic birding trip from EagleHawk Neck, last weekend. c50 White-chinned Petrel, c5 Buller's Shearwater, 2 Sooty Shearwater, 1 Little Shearwater, c12 Wandering Albatross, 6 Black-browed Albatross, c200 Shy Albatross, c40 Yellow-nosed Albatross, c20 Buller's Albatross, 6 Grey-backed Storm Petrel, 8 White-faced Storm Petrel. Sounds as if it was a good trip, they also added they saw a Marlin. I believe the deep sea fishing is pretty good at the moment.

It does sound like a good trip - almost all birds we haven't seen before, never really having had much to do with the sea. One of these days, were going to get to go on one of Bill's Pelagic trips!
