<I believe the correct name for the Yarrabah Road that leads to the Turf Farm
and Crocodile Farm is Kamma Pine Creek Road.>
The map shows it as Pine Creek Road. (south of Cairns, Far North QLD)

<The ABC (worth $8 a day) radio masts close to the Turf Farm has also been a
place to find those confusing  Red-rumped Swallows all nicely perched on the
stay wires plus birds flying>

These wires were removed several years ago and no Red-rumped Swallows have been
seen there for many years. I did see 33 Red-rumped Swallows on February 3rd last
year, on wires along Lower Freshwater Road (the old Hwy north) .This is a
particularly good spot in the wet season for all sorts of birds and only 15 mins
from Cairns.
