Featured Image : 2 metre Salt Water Crocodile on the banks of a lagoon

There has also been plenty of croc action too…
We always knew there was one saltwater crocodile in the lagoons….somewhere…..but had never sighted him …. until now.
There is the original big boy, at around 4 metres, that we have seen most days and also the smaller one in the first lagoon is around 2 metres .
He has been putting on a show, and never ventures too far from his slide on the bank, and he seems incredibly hungry.
Nearly every time we spot him he is eating something.
One day a big fish, then a huge Eel and yesterday we couldn’t work out what on earth he was eating then we realised it was a big fruit bat, and seemed to have a bit of trouble getting those rubbery wings down.

Crocs of Tyto
This large Male Agile Wallaby didn’t seem to mind the Willie Wagtail hitching a ride.
Crimson Finches are in abundance at present, always hard to walk past without taking a pic.
As too are the gorgous Red-backed Fairywrens.
We haven’t seen any unusual birds but it’s great to see all the locals again. Lots of birds are nesting so it’s a very busy time.
The Wandering Whistling ducks are a nice site on the lagoons.
With the weather starting to heat up, it brings back a few Dragonflies.
