Back in the Top End

As of about a week ago I've been back up in the Northern Territory. I'm up here to conduct my honours field work and will be returning south in mid-february.

It's nice to be re-acquainted with the heat, the storms, frogs, reptiles, plants and birds that I became used to during my last stay up here, though there are lots of other exciting things that I'm experiencing now that I didn't encounter then. The landscape has definitely changed in my absence and it's fascinating to see the biological changes that are driven by the seasons.

Below are a few photos from the last couple of days. Hopefully I'll keep the blog updated intermittently while I'm up here though I expect that as time goes on (and runs out) that I'll have few spare minutes to do so.

Litoria meiriana, the Rockhole Frog, from Litchfield National Park.

Spiny-tailed Gecko, Strophrurus ciliaris.

Frill-Necked Lizard, Chlamydosaurus kingii.
