Each winter the sleepy fishing town of Bimbulla, on the southern New South Wales coast, is visited by the magnificent wandering albatross on its stopover to the Antarctic.Dig is a loner, a scientist who lives to tag hundreds of these stately creatures on their annual appearance. This year, though, a leg band on a bird that was tagged in the 1960s hints at sinister events in the past and he goes looking for clues . . . Whitecap is a stunning evocation of the natural world-and the unearthing of a small town's secrets.
