Steve, and all would be twitchers,

A great post Steve................

I am just back in Adelaide after twitching the RL Crake over the long weekend (so no holidays needed)

The bird behaved imaculately, showing itself for 2-3 hours. - photos will be posted on ABID in the next couple of days. - I left it in the company of the local constabulary, enjoying as shower under the sprinkler (the Crake that is...not the police....)

For the record, I researched for about week before deciding to go.

Airfare - $150 (frequent flyer points)
Car Hire - $120 (Avis with a 20% discount voucher) 2 days  + 400km
Hotel - $240 - cheapest I could find) 2 nights
Meals - $60 - you could do this cheaper, but I ate out both nights
Fuel - $45 ....... $1.54 per litre!!!!

All up around $600, to see a part of Aus I'd not been to before, see a brilliant bird, and collect about 8 other ticks at the same time

Go know you want to........

Happy birding
