This White-tailed Tropicbird had made its nest in a scrape underneath the table in the Arrivals Hall.  They are very protective of their eggs, and this one didn't even move while the owner was sitting at the desk above it, giving the welcome speech.  Note the beautiful long white tail feather.

Baggage handling equipment at Bird Island.  The rooms are all individual thatched cottages, in three rows - we had one in the front row overlooking the sea.

The interior of our room.  Note the shelf behind the bed, where the Noddy regurgitated a fish for us.

The dining room - Linda in the right foreground.  The food on Bird was excellent.

The bar, an old boat dragged up the beach (behind me), and stood in the middle of the floor.  The barman stands inside the boat, dishing out the drinks.
