In the afternoon we did a bit of Sperm Whale watching via a light aircraft - saw about 8-12 Sperm Whales - a good day!

HI, Im just searching for good images of Westland Petrel for the start of a BirdLife Site Support Group at the species' main site in westland.

Can I use one of your photos (one of the things at sea). Suspect we'll put our stuff up on the Forest & Bird website at the end of the day.

Cheers
