A few storm-petrels and Tahiti Petrels were about for most of the time we were out on the shelf. We drifted 6 nautical miles in a southerly direction before laying a second berley trail at 12pm. Nothing else of interest emerged, but the occasional lacklustre day is par for the course for seabird enthusiasts. We turned around at 12.45pm and arrived back at the marina at 3pm.
