LORD HOWE IS­LAND

PROV­I­DENCE PE­TRELS RE­TURN, MTS GOWER AND LIDGBIRD

Australian Geographic - - Wild Australia -

Lord Howe – a speck in the Pa­cific, 780km north-east of Syd­ney – is the only place prov­i­dence pe­trels breed. From March, at least 32,000 breed­ing pairs be­gin ar­riv­ing on the slopes of Mt Gower and Mt Lidgbird. Courtship flights, noisy calls and the fact they will land near and ap­proach bush­walk­ers makes for an ex­tra­or­di­nary ex­pe­ri­ence on Lit­tle Is­land Track and Lower Road, up the dif­fi­cult trek to Mt Gower.
