Croydon Birding

I left Normanton and drove more than one hundred kilometers until I found Green Creek. I decided to camp there for the night. There were not many birds about. In the morning I carried on towards Croydon and stopped at Belmore Creek, where there was a bit more activity, plus the remains of an old gold mine. I climbed up the tailings heap. Full of cyanide. doh!
