These special mythical creatures were highlighted to me whilst staying in a remote community in Arnhem Land. Each morning, before first light appeared, they would create a huge cacophony of screeching and chattering as they woke in their gathered hoards. The impact made me realise how strange and special they really are and how they play an important part in our eco system.
