Flying-fox Flyout

The photograph was taken in our backyard almost 20 years ago by Steve Parish and it shows this astonishing beautiful native animal off very well.

You can see the Spectacled Flying-foxes fly out of an early evening in Daintree (Wonga Beach) shortly after 6 pm. The best vantage point would be from the corner of Marlin Drive and Janbal Street looking north-west.

Sure sign of Winter.

The arrival of Lewin's Honeyeaters into the lowland rainforest of Daintree is a sure sign of Winter. This is not a major migration it is simply a change in altitude to warmer climes.
