Hi Falk,
I spent a few weeks on Elcho Island in late 2004, early 2005 working for a
school on the northern end of the island.

I got some very good birds while there; Chestnut Rail, frigatebirds, waders
etc. The habitats were tropical schlerophyll and vine scrub,  from memory.
I presume you have permits to be there,  or are at least work there rather
than just planning a visit.

If you would like more info,  contact me and i will try to dig up my lists.



Yours in all things "GREEN"
