          Hi We will be staying on Bird Island for 3 nights mid October. Presume the weather will be hot & read that casual dress suitable. Just wanted to query re mosquitos as the little blighters love me. If I put insect repellant on, will I be OK with short sleeved tops etc or do I need to cover up? Hubby looking forward to the birding, I'm looking forward to the snorkelling. With turtles would be the icing on the cake! Thanks in advance for any advice. Chris
