For those fascinated with Lake Eyre & the ebb&flow of life there,
the last few days have seen a masive rainfall in SW Queensland: which as well
as good times for Letter-winged Kites should see another
pulse of water into Lake Eyre down the Georgina, Eyre & Diamantina.

The YC Lake Eyre status page
has a nice Modis satellite photo
of a flood from the NW into Lake Eyre a few weeks ago.

If you have more  patience&time than me you can 
track the flows yourself via Modis satellite images:
