We are planning a trip to Darwin/Kakadu in July and, as I'm so excited by
the prospect, I've already been doing my home-work. I've read through
Bransbury and Thomas and Thomas in conjunction with my 'hit-list' and they
seem pretty comprehensive. However I'd still like to know:

1. Which are the best (also most accessible, probably mutually exclusive),
areas of mangroves around Darwin? There seems to be a list as long as my arm
of things one ought to see in mangroves, and I'd like to see as many as poss.

2. Are there any colonies of Letter-winged Kites still extant in the Darwin
area, or within striking distance?

3. Are there any really deadly places not in Thomas and Thomas or Bransbury?

Thanks in advance.
