Rainbow Bee-eaters

We really do need a little rain now to freshen things up as the dry season progresses. We are very fortunate to have a good water supply from a rainforest creek so can at least keep the grass fairly green (after all if we don't use the water it will simply run out to sea!).

The Rainbow Bee-eaters are having a great time swooping down over the surface of the dam after insects and this beautiful shot was taken by John Gordon, a recent guest. In fact it was John and Meg's second stay with us and while they were here John took some wonderful photos which he has kindly given us permission to use. We will be adding some to our Daintree Valley Haven website soon. Thank you John!
