I was back in Tasmania this weekend for another couple of pelagic trips from Eaglehawk Neck. The distance out from shore to the drop off at the edge of the continental shelf is not great in this part of Tasmania, so it's a good location for seeing sea birds.
I went out on two trip over the weekend that were rather contrasting in terms of weather, birds and the amount of seasickenss I suffered!
Anyway, theses are some of the birds I/we saw.
|Great Albatross (one of the wandering types)|
|Salvin's Albatross (Shy in foreground)|
|White-bellied Sea Eagle|
|Northern Giant Petrel|
|Shy Albatross (and Kelp Gull)|
|Indian Yellow-Nosed Albatross|
I have to say I did not enjoy the return trip on the second day, but I managed to keep my act together, and the celebratory ice-cream on dry land was a delight.
