Sandy Billabong

I wasn't planning to visit Sandy Billabong, but as fate had it, it turned out to be one of the highlights of my visit to Kakadu.

A very beautiful spot, it was flourishing with bird life.

The first photo opportunity was a Forest Kingfisher radiating on a branch.

Three Rainbow Beeeaters traded places on a dead branch overhanging the edge of the water.

They would fly off to catch a passing insect and be back to the branch in seconds to wait for another snack to fly past.

A Restless Flycatcher got in on the beeeaters act, and approached over the water via the lotus lillies.

Northern Fantails fluttered around the trees surrounding the edge of the billabong.
