Crocodile breeding time.

It is birdwatching time in the Daintree and it is also crocodile breeding time. As we watched two large crocodiles shared a tender moment by gently submerging and blowing bubbles from their noses. This sort of behavior is rare to see because crocodiles are normally seen lying on the Daintree River bank and doing absolutely nothing.

Daintree wildlife

4 Oct 10. It is Black Bittern time in the Daintree River. Usually arriving in November Black Bitterns are being seen at least 50 % of the time on the dawn river trip. The poor light conditions with the light rain are considered good for this secretive species.
