Hi Birders

I've been asked to pass on this opportunity for some fantastic birding on
the island rookeries off Broome. I am told that these islands are difficult
to get onto without appropriate leadership and permits and that this tour
satisfies all arrangements required. The young are at the point of leaving
nests, so it is now deemed safe for guests to visit.

The tour will take place from Oct 13 to 21 and will tour all important
rookery islands off Broome. These rookeries contain large numbers of
pelagics including Brown Boobies, Masked Boobies, Frigate Birds and Bridle
Terns (last season at least 5,000 were present at one location alone). The
scenery along the Kimberley coast is amazing and I'm assured that the entire
tour will never be forgotten.

The tour will not take place this year unless more takers come on board, so
if you're keen to witness these marvels, there is an excellent opportunity
now before you.

You should probably know that I have nothing to do with this operation and
am simply passing on a request by an enthusiastic regular on these cruises
who is keen to go again, promote this seemingly fantastic birding adventure
and ensure that the numbers of participants required for it to proceed are
met. I do so as a favour for a friend, to promote interest in this beautiful
part of the world and make interested parties aware of a nice opportunity.

Regards - Ricki Coughlan
