We have a course, "Birds of the Broome Region", planned for September 22-26
2003. At this time, we still have some vacancies on this course.

Broome Bird Observatory
'Birds of the Broome Region'
September 22nd - 26th 2003

With over 300 species on the Broome Region bird list, the North West is an
extraordinary place for birding. Be exposed to the myriad of habitats that
sustain and support such a diversity of birdlife. Discover the world of
migratory waders and learn to separate and identify. Experience the return
of the waders on migration. Explore the bush, plains, samphire, mangroves
and inland lakes. Discover all the best birding sites in the Broome Region.

The course includes talks and slideshows by Broome Bird Observatory Wardens
on Wader Identification. During the week participants will take part in
research activities conducted by the Observatory, Bird Log, Atlassing and
Mudding (yes, even more fun than it sounds!!).

The exact course timetable has yet to be finalised (dependant on tides and
remaining wetlands at the end of the dry.

Be prepared for a week of learning and fun as we immerse ourselves in the
world of birds.

¨ Cost for the week is $780 per person.

¨ The Observatory has binoculars and telescopes available for course
participants or you may use your own birding gear.

The weather in Broome in September can be very hot and humid, so bring
appropriate clothing. Also bring old clothing and shoes suitable for
walking through mangroves and mudflats.
