I have mostly snorkelled rather than birded on Lady Elliot, but I would not 
expect the tide to make much difference; there are no mud flats, and at low 
tide of the lagoon side you can walk out to the rim of the reef, and walk 
around the island. The tide makes a big difference to the snorkeling in the 
lagoon, for at low tide it is too shallow, but not much difference on the other 
side, for the drop off into deeper water is quite rapid.

I am in Hervey Bay  and would like to visit Lady Eliott Is for a day trip to 
see all the birds there.  However the
tide is high most of the time the trip lasts( 8.40- 3.30) and I am wondering if 
it is still possible to see the birds
or should I postpone my trip till I am in QLd at another time from Nov - March 
when there is a low tide.  As I
want to keep travelling south I do not want to wait till next week for a low 
tide day.

I would appreciate any advice from someone who has experienced Lady Eliott Is.
