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.
