G'day everyone, There have been some cancellations for the upcoming pelagic 
trip out of Hillarys on Sunday April 1st. As such, there are now a number of 
spaces available on the trip. If you're interested, please get in touch with 
the organiser, Alan Collins, by e-mail at  (preferred), or 
by phone on 9291 4219. The cost of the boat is shared equally by all 
participants, and is expected to be $110 with a full boatload of 27 people 
(increasing if the boat is not filled - e.g. expected cost with 25 people is 
$115)  As posted previously, this is the first trip that has been run off Perth 
at this time of year for over a decade, so we should hopefully record a few 
different species to other Hillarys trips in recent years. We hope to see 
shearwaters, jaegers (which pass in good numbers on passage in early April), 
terns, and possibly albatross and petrels. Plus we are hoping something 
different may turn up, like tropicbirds or possibly other more tropical species 
 courtesy of warm water temps from a strong Leeuwin Current. And last year's 
Great Shearwater irruption was around this time of year too, so you never know 
:D Cheers,John
