Day 3: Michaelmas Cay

Saturday December 4, 2010

On Saturday we had an early-start and headed down to Cairns to take the 'Seastar' out to Michaelmas Cay for a spot of snorkelling (..and to catch up with Red-footed Boobies!)

Also on board were two other birdos, one from South Africa, the other Danish, we organized with the skipper to take a trip around the Cay in his rubber-dinghy and though we saw some excellent birds I encountered tragedy when my camera and I both went for an unscheduled swim! Sadly this is the reason for a lack of images of the (5 or so) Red-footed Boobies that are currently present there.
