However they do have great birds. This Jabiru had been found six years ago by the tour folk as a neglected orphan of twins so they started giving him some extra fish on regular basis. Now he flies in to say hello most tours. He is totally independent but does accept any fish they throw him!

We couldn't have got closer if we tried.
About 10 metres away.
The White-breasted Whistler is a difficult bird to see. Well, the male is. Here is the female.

So we waited a few seconds while he was still about and, lo and behold, he hopped in front of the mangrove leaf and stayed still for 30 seconds. Plenty of time! Quite a speccy bird. I was well pleased with the view [and the photo too].
