Daintree Wildlife

23 April 2011
Great-billed Heron, Little Kingfisher and Black Bittern
were our best birds this morning but we finally saw the Peregrine Falcon as it split up a Cattle Egret flock in Windy Reach. We have known or thought that the falcon was around because the birds have been so quiet and we actually saw it in action this morning.

We have just completed the first trip of the year and what a trip it was. We saw; Great-billed Heron, Black bittern, White-bellied Sea-Eagle, Brahminy Kite, four kingfisher species, Shining Flycatchers, Eastern Water Dragon and Green Tree Snake plus some more birds. The weather was not the best but it is improving.
