A Red-billed Tropicbird was apparently present Monday (maybe later) on Lord 
Howe Island. This report came via Tony Palliser, who was contacted by a visitor 
to the island. Tony has tentatively confirmed the identity of this bird. Once 
confirmed, this will make it a first for Australia! 


There are no other details at present. Once details are available, they will be 
posted at address below.

We have arranged a charter aircraft available for 6 passengers for a one-day 
return trip departing Sydney, if the bird is found to still be present. 

Immediately email  if you would like a space.

The price will be approximately $1,600 return leaving Sydney airport in the 
morning and returning in the afternoon (which morning will depend on what news 
we find out about the bird). Compare this to the cost of a return flight to 
Lord Howe plus overnight accommodation, approx $1,200 flight + at least $250 
per person for accommodation, though this may not be available (Lord Howe 
accommodation is limited because it is a World Heritage Area) plus not 
inexpensive food.
