Dear Stewart,

I agree with Shane's comment about Rottnest Island. Just in case you have not 
seen it, 
there is a book about birds of Rottnest Island, which is certainly worth a read:

Saunders, D. & de Rebeira, P. (1993). Birds of Rottnest Island (Published by 
authors, Guildford). 2d edition.

I'm not sure how extensively this publication is available, but it can be 
purchased from 
the Rottnest Island Tourist Shop.
