Hi folks

I had lots of fun at the BA members day in Tassie and a day or so either side - saw all the Tassie endemic birds - nearly all on Bruny Island, including crippling views of Forty-spotted Pardalotes at Tonia Cochrane's Inala property.  First visit to Tassie for nearly 20 years, so the 40spot was one of a few "Swarovski ticks" for my weekend (ie. birds seen PROPERLY at long last, after previous inferior views through inferior optics).

I'm intrigued to hear how the pelagic trips went - the much feared weather didn't really eventuate on Sunday.  We saw large numbers of gannets and dolphins feeding off The Neck on Bruny, and the sea looked pretty flat.
