White Bellied Sea Eagle on Yellow Waters

There are many permanent Sea Eagle nests around the Yellow Waters area including the South Alligator River.
This was a rather beautiful looking bird.

For more information on this bird, see
Sea Eagles fact sheet

So much to see!

Even the fungi is so interesting to see. We stopped for a cuppa at the entrance to Kakadu Heritage Park and we though this was worth a picture.

Storm brewing over Kakadu

We had a very different cruise at Yellow Waters Cooinda. As there had been lots of rain overnight, we had to take a boat fron the road at Home Billabong, then board a bigger boat for the Yellow Waters cruise. It was a good 1.5 hr cruise with a good tour guide. We saw lots of kites, sea eagles, one crocodile amongst other wildlife
This was the view from the boat when we set ot mid afternoon.

The ladies decided I needed a new look!!

I just had to take it.........

Interesting to see that with so much water around, many of the water lillies and lotus flowers are dying off, This looked good though.
