Very interesting visitors

Yesterday we enjoyed a surprise visit by one of Australia's leading ornithologists, Lloyd Nielsen and his partner Dorothy. Lloyd is the author of many field guides to birds and is also an expert photographer and artist, with many of his photographs of birds and other animals being published internationally.

We had a fascinating afternoon talking to them both and were thrilled when Lloyd gave us a signed copy of "Daintree Jewel of Tropical North Queensland", a wonderful book covering all the flora, fauna, local history etc. of our beautiful region.

If you visit his website at http://www.birdingaustralia.com.au/ you will find heaps of information about Lloyd, his work and his books.
