Why I love it
“This is one of the largest annual bird gatherings in the world. The best bit is the deafening roar as the sky fills with tens of thousands of wetland birds evading a hungry crocodile, sea eagle or dingo. It is the sight that every Kakadu visitor hopes to see.” – Rachael Arnold, Kakadu Animal Tracks Safari
