Testimonial Comma 01
We want you to know how much we enjoyed Bird Week 2019. The object of the week was to see birds and our guides, Margaret and Ron went out of their way to find them. That morning tea at Margaret's home with the Masked Boobies was a highlight. The day that Ron led us on the Palm Glen walk the Green Parrots were shy so he then took us to the Red Road to show us a good spot and when we came back later we had great views of the Parrots. This was our third visit to Norfolk Island and our second Bird Week (2016) but there is always something new to see and we have met many lovely people.
Eric and Margaret Wheeler,
