Hi all,

Due to the weather-related cancellation of the Albany pelagics scheduled for 
the weekend just gone, we've organised an alternative weekend of trips. 
Priority has been given to those who were booked on the cancelled trips, but 
there are a number of spaces of remaining on both days. As usual, we will 
travel 50km offshore to the drop-off at the edge of the continental shelf, 
hoping to see a variety of albatross, petrel and shearwater species, and 
hopefully something unusual! We haven't run a trip in November for almost 
10yrs, but the skipper of the boat reckons November is one of the best months 
for bird numbers - he isn't a birder, but said similar about May which has 
yielded good results recently. Sooty Albatross, White-headed and Grey Petrel 
were all seen on one of the previous two November trips also.

As always, the cost of the boat is split between participants - the cost is 
expected to be $150/person/trip with full boats of 18 people, increasing to 
$180/person/trip with the minimum of 15 people.

If you'd like to come along, please let me know - I need to confirm (or cancel) 
our booking with the skipper by the end of the month. You're more than welcome 
to book for a single trip or both trips, just please make it clear which day(s) 
you'd like to book for
