Cocos Keeling Island West Island
It is now day 5 that this male Narcissus has been calling and flitting around a 40 square metre piece of tall saplings on the sheltered foreshore. There is a track running under these trees where some seats have been placed and Tom Smith from Bendigo sat and got his 814th.

Cocos Islands West Island
After 5 days of storms from the West turning South, this little fellow turned up on the runway where the wild peas had just been mown. We had another one two years ago but was so emaciated after the long flight it died.
