Several birds sighted close up in the rare riverine rainforest remnant.
This bird already had a tick. Didn't see the parasite at the time in the jungle gloom.
Ticked off today to miss this 90cm Red-bellied Black Snake (Pseudechis porphyriacus) capturing and swallowing striped frog. The kill occurred three metres from me, but snake's head always hidden under flattened grass the frog unwisely ducked into.
Also ticked off at inability to get clear shot of this two-metre Water Python (Liasis mackloti) at its retreat, a broken culvert at a nearby sugar cane ditch.
