|Aboriginal artists - Derby|
After Windjana Gorge (see last post), we headed north-west to the town of Derby for a one-night stay at the ordinary and overpriced (like just about everything up this way) Kimberley Lodge Caravan Park.

|King Sound Mangroves|
I checked out the mangroves near the Derby wharf on King Sound, seeing the Kimberley (“Brown-tailed”) race of Lemon-bellied Flycatcher, Dusky Gerygone, Yellow White-eye, White-breasted Whistler and Mangrove Golden Whistler.

The next morning I returned to the mangroves, seeing in addition to the above, Broad-billed Flycatcher and a distant Great-billed Heron feeding on the tide-line.
It was interesting to compare the female of this subspecies of Mangrove Golden Whistler to the one further east, which has much more yellow on the underparts.
