A lovely evening in a tropical setting at Liam and Treanne's house-warming. The dress suggestion for the cocktail party was formal so it was great fun dressing up.

Visit to Territory Wildlife Park with Pauline and Lindsey

On Saturday afternoon I went to the Territory Wildlife park and was able to show Pauline and her daughter Lindsey the Raptors at the Flight Deck Display. This a Barking Owl

The raptor display was disturbed by the local kites harassing the birds on show especially the Crested Hawk or (Pacific Baza) (Aviceda subcristata) which was somewhat rattled by the Black Kites. More information Crested Hawk Fact sheet

The White-bellied Sea Eagle,“Terence” was also watching them circle overhead,
