Postby Michael Szabo » Thu Apr 14, 2022 5:53 pm

Rohan Clarke reports via Facebook that 3 different NZ Storm-Petrels were seen at sea off eastern Victoria yesterday.
This included 2 birds together and a third at a more distant site with different plumage features. This is the 2nd record for Victoria.
New Caledonian Storm-Petrels were also seen in the same area at sea in February.
Also recorded were 9 Buller's Shearwaters inc a single flock of 8, and 24 Providence Petrels.
