pelagic extras - Australia 2011

Several other species from the boat.....

Crested Terns (including one of several which landed on the hand rail while way out in inclement weather)

One of two Humpback Whales encountered on the way back into Sydney Harbour

Australasian Gannets - not dissimilar to Northern Gannets at a distance, but easily separated by the black on the central tail feathers and secondaries

Brown Skuas - good luck with that off Flamborough
