Some Sea Birds

Here are some pics from a couple of non-birding trips we have done recently but still managed to get these shots (to me, every trip has the potential for some new birds!). The photos of the gannet were captured at Moffat Beach, Caloundra while the other two are from the Urangan Pier at Hervey Bay. The Booby was a lucky find as I hadn't even seen it but my wife pointed it out as it flew by. I was unable to identify it on the day as I didn't have my binoculars with me. Thankfully I was able to check the photos upon upon returning home for a positive ID and add one more to the lifelist!
