SOSSA Pelagic, Wollongong

I went out on the SOSSA pelagic again this weekend. My Australia list grew by 5 with the addition of Black Petrel, Great-winged Petrel (NZ Grey-faced race 'gouldi'), Flesh-footed Shearwater, Sooty Shearwater and, the highlight, a Bridled Tern. It was only the second record of Bridled Tern on the boat the last being 15 years ago: a very rare visitor to NSW. Despite the briefest of fly-bys Martin Cachard got the picture.
