Hi folks,


Whilst I'm very excited about the fast-approaching 20 - 28 October Ashmore
Reef trip with George Swan, Rohan Clarke and Mike Carter, there are two
recent cancellations that need to be filled.  I was on last year's Ashmore
Reef trip - which was quite simply incredible.  Visiting the remote islands
of Ashmore and Lacepedes off the northwest coast was as close to a David
Attenborough-like exploration of unspoilt nature as is possible.  The trip
report at found here:
38.html  gives only a tantalising glimpse of the magic we experienced, from
10's of thousands of Roseate Terns roosting in a scrum surrounded by equal
numbers of Noddies and  Boobies, to seabird rarities like Swinhoes and
Matsudaira's Storm-petrels, to daily searches for vagrants on West Island,
Ashmore.  The diversity of cetaceans seen at close quarters was worthy of
the cost, and the camaraderie and regularity of high-fives was great.


It looks like two cancellations can be a godsend to the right
person(s)/couple.  If you've never done this trip, can afford it, and are
able to ship out on 20th October, you'd be nuts not to go for it. Contact
George at  .
