Managed to snag myself a morning off work so took a quick run out to Low Isles 
(off Port Douglas FNQ) to watch the Pied Imperial Pigeons heading east. I was 
particularly interested in the number of birds flying into the Daintree Valley 
compared to those heading due east. The Daintree Valley is north east of the 
island and further to fly. There is obviously better food reserves to the north.
While I was there I also saw ;-
Eastern Reef Egret (grey and white morph)
Varied Honeyeater
Silver Gull
Crested Tern
Unidentified tern
Beach Stone Curlew
Collared Kingfisher
White Breasted Wodswallow
Welcome Swallow
Sacred Kingfisher
Bar Shouldered Dove
Australian Pelican
Ruddy Turnstone
Apparently the Beach Stone Curlews breed on the island, regardless of the 
hundreds of tourists that visit every day.
