> Greetings all,
>              I would like to let anyone know  who may be in the Broome area,
> planning a trip up this way, that there is a course being conducted at
> Broome Bird Observatory from the 25th to the 30th of August.  The leader
> this course is Nicholas Day, of Simpson & Day Fieldguide fame, so you
> not be in better hands if you wish to record your artistic impressions of
> North-West Australian birdlife, including migratory waders from the
> Tundra.  
> Because of  the cooler temperatures at present now is an opportune time
> visit- "One of THE BEST places to watch birds in Australia",- and should
> not be missed.  With dry sunny weather for most of the year the
> for bird watching are ideal. 
> Broome has five distinctly different habitats ranging from huge
> mudflats (roughly the size of Sydney Harbour) through dry Pindan scrub to
> freshwater lakes and marshes and open grassy plains. This range of
> has resulted in an abundance of bird life being present with over 270
> species recorded in and around Broome including 47+ species of Waders 
> ( 800,000 migrating annually from the North West), and 22 species of
> raptors.
> The area is also well known for the number of scarce migrants and
> from the northern hemisphere that periodically arrive here.
> Accomodation at the Observatory ranges from a camping and caravan park
> powered sites, through air conditioned or fan cooled single or double
> rooms, with share facilities, to a fully self contained chalet with five
> single beds and its own fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and laundry.
> For further information and bookings for Nicholas Day's "Broome and Brush
> Course", or any other queries you may have, please phone the Observatory
> 08 91935600 and speak to the friendly wardens, Jan Sparrow or Chris
> Hassell, or alternatively you may fax them on 08 91923364.  
> During the course you will be able to see a field guide being prepared
> see how other artists worldwide are working as well as taking part in
> discussions and field trips. So bring along your artwork, paints,
> pencils and paper and enjoy the demonstrations with one of Australia's
> leading bird artists.
