We've just begun a trip around the Cairns region...we'll be reporting on the 
activities, birds and places to see birds and stay in the area. This was a nice 
added bonus on arrival, as we visited the botanic gardens and had a Little 
Kingfisher on the freshwater lake. Time to try out the Swarovski digi-scoping 
set up and a new Canon 550D digital SLR and video camera.

Watched Cassowary down to a couple of feet today - I will see if I can get that 
video online tomorrow. A truly amazing if slightly nervy experience, as she 
took an interest in the end of my lens and paced slowly towards me as I sat on 
the verandah at at Cassowary House. Far more than I imagined and quite regular 
occurrence I am told.

Time for bed now...Sooty Owl calling outside.

All the best birding,
