Do you know of anyone that might be able to assist Caz / Jim locate  
Chatham Island Albatross Diomedea cauta eremita photographs? 
see attached note below. Regrettably I have not seen this bird yet, 
however I do know of one or two famous birders that have managed 
to see this dramatic species off of Tasmania.

My husband Jim Enticott just back from a 2 month trip on a longline  
fishing vessel has discovered that the photoeditor of their  
forthcoming book has failed to get hold (or even ask for I think)  
photos of Chatham Island Albatross!  Imagine the egg on the faces!! 
Please, please do you have any shots of D.c. eremita (hopefully soon  
to be split to full species I gather) that could be urgently sent to  
the publishers in London UK? 
He and I have a week to find these omissions (mostly visually  
distinct subspecies).  Am I right in thinking that Phil (Hansbro) is  
still on the high seas ticking off lifers by the dozen? 
Look forward to hearing from you, even if it is to say sorry can't  
Jim has yet to get to Oz and NZ but we are hopeful that it might be  
at the end of this year finally.
