Port Fairy Tour Reports

Sunday 18th June 2017 - Another great boat trip. Large seas up to 5mt swells but not choppy. We saw eight species of Albatross including Sooty and Salvins Albatross. Three species of Prion plus a possible Salvins Prion.

Sunday 14th May 2017 - The highlight for May was approximately 500 Albatross at our second stop between our boat and a fishing trawler. Out of that group of birds flew a Westland Petrel. This is believed to be the first live record for Victoria of this species.

Sunday 23rd April 2017 - 10 Albatross species which included a hybrid. The hybrid most likely between a Black-browed and Grey-headed Albatross.

Sunday 2nd April 2017 - first time seen on a Birdswing Pelagic trip - Black-bellied Storm-Petrel

Sunday 27th November 2016 - Was our last trip on "Perceive". Big thanks go to the skipper (Russell) and the deckhand (Paul). A wonderful lot of Pelagic Trips with these guys since 2011. November was an exciting month with Cooks Petrel followed soon afterwards by Gould's Petrel both new birds for the boat list.

We added for the year list (2016) Sooty Albatross, Light-mantled Sooty Albatross, Grey Headed Albatross, Salvins Albatross, Antarctic Tern, Cooks and Gould's Petrel.
