Night of the birds

Last night three of us hit the sea off North Head to find thousands if not tens of thousands of shearwaters, gulls and even some prijons in a massive feeding frenzy.

Mark Hempel got his fair share of the action - don't buy a 2nd hand PFD from this man!

Lots of tiny fish around the 5 cm mark were at the centre of the frenzy. These tiny fish were being smashed by mackeral and the birds were getting their share by ducking under for the scraps or taking stunned fish from just below the surface.
