This photo of the Wedge Tailed Shearwater, better know as the less impressive sounding Common Muttonbird, was taken a couple of miles east of Sydney Harbour from the deck of a 29 ft yacht. There was something dead floating in the sea which attracted quite a few muttonbirds - and a small shark which swam off just as we arrived.
