Never seen Red-backed Kingfisher (Todiramphus pyrrhopygius) in Tyto. Caught this bird out on coastal road the other day.
Seemed to be doing better grabbing a feed than the flying Black-faced Woodswallow.
Further down the road, Rainbow Bee-eater (Merops ornatus) shows full spectrum of colour in taking off. And typical reluctance to fly into the frame. Flighty birds indeed.
Finally, action of a sort in Tyto: large Water Python carrying small grasshopper. Never did see snake's head, only the tail vanishing deeper into grasses at edge of lagoon.
