Dear all,

Diving on the fringing reefs, off Satonda Island (a small 4 km2,
volcanic island with saline crater lake, 3 km off Sumbawa) is popular
with touring boats/yachts travelling to and from Komodo Island from
Bali. The islands unusual crater lake on the island is also often
visited for a swim.

I wondered if anyone had visited this unusual island and had land bird
