This is a general call for interest for a seabird trip out of south east
Tasmania. I am willing to co-ordinate a trip if sufficient interest exists
out there in the ether..
There have been a couple of well-received trips out of Eaglehawk Neck
recently, and the cost per person was about $60-70, depending on numbers..
If you are interested in such a trip, please contact me directly by email
and let me know when you would be able to
participate. I would imagine a trip sometime between 10 Nov and 20 Dec, as
a starting point/guide, if that helps people to organise..
Let me know - if I can drum up sufficient interest, we may be able to do
this on a reasonably regular basis.
