Dear Birders

I've just read the above posting in great anticipation as I will be visiting 
the island at the end of Nov as part of my annual trip to Australia (From UK!)

As the author (David) states he could hear the Providence Petrel chicks in the 
burrows would anyone hazard a guess as to the likelihood of this species 
-(adults flying in at dusk ideally!) still being about at the end of Nov.  I 
had more or less discounted this species at this time of year on Lord Howe.

A couple of other questions if I may please; are the Black-winged likely to be 
on site by end of Nov and what are the chances of Kermadec if you can't get out 
to Balls Pyramid?   Are there currently any recommended 'birder orientated ' 
boats that at least do trips around the main island if not out to Balls Pyramid.

Any help much appreciated either to forum or direct.
Thank you

Matthew Rodgers, UK
