Rock art from western Arnhem Land. Simple figure with spears and spearthrower.
My posts may be a little erratic over next few days as Jan and I drive the 3000+ kilometres from Darwin to Adelaide. Internet connections are patchy. But I do hope to find interesting pictures and stories along the way. Thanks for following this blog…I hope you enjoy the pictures and stories as much as I enjoy sharing.

The Whistling Kite (Haliaster splenurus) is another raptor that is found in all Australian states. It’s also found in Papua New Guinea and Vanuata. As the name suggests it has a distinctive shrill whistling call. The slightly untidy bird in the lower picture is a juvenile, I believe. The Whistling Kite is a common bird of the Western Arnhem Land Plateau where it is known as Marram.
