Darwin with Peregrine Bird Tours

October 10, 2010 — October 13, 2010

A day of birding with Chris Doughty and Niven Mcrie around Darwin. The highlight was almost certainly Chestnut Rail - which gave prolonged views out in the open opposite Buffalo Creek. 105 species in all for the day.

The highlights were Australian Pratincole, Royal Spoonbill, large numbers of Magpie Geese and Plumed Whistling Ducks. A fruiting fig and flowering tree were awash with birds including White-gaped Honeyeater, Silver-crowned Friarbird and Pied Imperial Pigeons. Read more.
