Abstract

On the 31st October and the 28th November last year I visited the Actaeons, touching on the first occasion at Southport Island, and, on the second, at the Blanche Rock, of shipwreck notoriety. The object of my visit was to gain information on the breeding of our sea birds on these out-ofthe- way islets, and the following notes purport to give an account of the nesting of the few species which were found on them.
