Gungurul Camping Ground

The next camp-ground heading towards Jabiru is Gungurul. It is another basic camping site with just toilets and fire-places. The price is right, however, only six dollars per night. You cannot whinge about that! In the afternoon I went for a walk to the South Alligator River. There were a few flowering gums with a few honeyeaters and lorikeets having a feed on the blossoms.

This Little Eagle was having a good look at me when I was on the bridge.

Brown Goshawk


Brown Goshawk (Accipiter fasciatus)

This Brown Goshawk landed in the grass at the side of the road and was rooting around in the undergrowth. I have no idea what he was doing.
