Hi birding-aussers, 

I'd just like to draw everyone's attention to the next Birds Australia 
public lecture in Victoria, which is on Thursday 10 March 2005 at 
8:00pm. We are very fortunate to have as our guest speaker Chris 
Lester, one of Australia's most respected birders. In his talk on BA 
Vic Pelagic boat trips from Port Fairy, Chris will take us through the 
experience of going on a sea-bird trip, why anyone would want to do 
one, what to expect and what might be seen through the seasons off Port 

As you know, a number of very interesting rarity have been seen on the 
last few Port Fairy Pelagic trips, including an Atlantic Petrel (a new 
bird for the Australian list), Soft-plumaged Petrel and Little 
Shearwater. The pelagic trips are also a great way to see some of 
Australia's magnificent whales, with Blue Whale and Sperm Whale both 
seen recently. For more information on the BA Vic Port Fairy Pelagic 
see the Birdline Victoria web page and click on the 'Pelagic Page' link 

The talk will be held at our usual venue - the theatrette at Strathcona 
Grammar School, Scott St, Canterbury, (Melways Ref. 46 D12), and will 
be preceded by a brief discussion into rare and unusual bird sightings 
in Australia and Victoria.

I would also like to draw your attention to the 2005 Birds Australia 
Congress and Campout, which will be held in Bendigo in 
September/October this year. For further details contact the event co-
ordinator Doris Graham on 9482 2112, email 

Happy birding,

Tim Dolby
