Bird and croc paradise at Kakadu – feast your eyes!

Today we did a Yellow Water cruise from Cooinda at Kakadu, a RAMSAR (internationally recognised) wetland. It was a photographer’s paradise: two crocodiles lying in the water next to jabirus, egrets and pelicans; an egret catching a snake, an estuarine crocodile basking in the shallows, weird, squat nankeen night herons, a white bellied sea eagle, hundreds of whistling ducks. At the end of the day, birds flew across the setting sun. Words can’t describe the beauty of the lagoon and river lined with melaleuca and pandanus. Enjoy!
