Hi all, 

There have been a number of Kerguelen Petrel records in SW WA this winter, both 
beachwashed and seawatched from shore. The nature of some of these records 
suggests they may be hanging around the shelf off WA so I'm proposing a 
short-notice pelagic off Albany (south coast WA) to have a look, if I can get 
the interest

The trip would run on the weekend of the 16th & 17th of August. If there is 
sufficient interest I'll consider trips on both days, but the more likely 
scenario is that it will one or the other.  The boat is available but we need 
to confirm ASAP as the skipper needs to juggle other plans to accommodate us. 
So if you'd like to come along, please let me know ASAP, and let me know if you 
would be interested in one day only or both. If only one day, let me know 
whether you could do either Saturday or Sunday, or can only make one of those 

The cost will be shared as always, $150/person/trip with a full boat of 18, 
increasing to $180/person/trip for 15 people. Much less than that and the trip 
won't go ahead

Final decision on whether I go ahead will be made by Friday at the latest
