Sydney Pelagic 10.8.02
A great day at sea on the Halicat. Seas slight on a low swell in warm spring sunny conditions. Made it well off shore and had two major highlights ľan adult Chatham Island Albatross and a juvenile Grey-headed Albatross. Both birds though sailed past and were not interested in the ecstatic birders unlike everything else that fed at the back of the boat.
