Avian highlight of a Wings charter off Sydney today was a single Black Petrel which stayed around the boat for at least 20 minutes feeding on the slick. Cetacean highlight was a pod of 40 Short-finned Pilot Whales which we found sleeping on the surface about 2 NM east of Brown's Mountain with a pod of more than 200 Oceanic Bottlenose Dolphins actively hunting all around them. Also 7 Wandering Albatross, 2 Campbell Albatross, 20 Wilson's Storm Petrel, and a Caspian Tern (inshore).
