Off Port MacDonnell, SA (Nov, 2011)

A number of seabirds provided several great opportunities for bird photography during a November pelagic off Port MacDonnell.

This Brown Skua was not one of them. It made a brief appearance at a distance and wasn't seen again.

My thanks to Colin Rogers and Grant Penrhyn for their assistance with identification.
