Additional Visits to Islands off Wilsons Promontory, Victoria

From 26 to 28 November 1980, additional visits were made to six islands off the southern and western coasts of Wilsons Promontory. The islands visited were Wattle and Kanowna on 26 November, Shellback and Norman on 27 November, and McHugh and Dannevig on 28 November. We were accompanied by (Mrs) L. F. Lane on all visits and by J. W. Hardy for the first two days only. Primarily, the purpose of the visits was to endeavour to obtain further information on the breeding of Fairy Prions and Common Diving-Petrels. The limited time spent on the islands was directed mainly towards searching for these birds in habitats which appeared suitable. No specific or systematic searching was made for other species.
