Sat 18 Sep Radjah Shelduck, Little Kingfisher Centenary Lakes, Cairns
An adult pair of Radjah Shelduck was recorded at 8am on Saturday resting beside Freshwater Lake, but had gone from the area an hour later. This species is a rare visitor to the Cairns area. Also seen during this time were 3 individual Little Kingfishers - 2 along the mangroves of Saltwater Creek with another bird on the connecting channel that runs alongside The Lakes Resort. This a good number of such an uncommon & elusive species.
