Dear Birding-Ausers,

At the start of the month, I posted an update on the two remaining trips 
that Bill Wakefield and I still have for Eaglehawk Neck in Tasmania in 
2009 on 27 September and 29 November. 

At the moment, we still have two vacancies on the September trip if anyone 
wishes to book a spot.  The November trip is now full, with a short 
waiting list.

The east coast of Tasmania is unusual because boat trips get out in 
weather conditions that would be considered extreme in many other places 
such as Port Fairy (where I have a bit of experience also).  The land mass 
of Tasmania itself provides lots of protection for the east coast waters 
and the boat gets out most times - quite safely.  Cost is approximately 
$100-120 if we get a full boat.

If you want to know what birds we see off Eaglehawk Neck, we always post 
trip reports on Birding-Aus.  You can search for the last 10 years worth 
in the archives at  We 
have run one trip already this year in February.  It was a very good trip 
with several Mottled Petrels and at least one Buller's Shearwater.  Steve 
Murray posted a report recently on Wildiaries at

So, if you want a pelagic off Tasmania to add to your southern sea-bird 
experiences, please let me know asap.
