Collared Kingfisher makes a collar


Collared Kingfisher (Todiramphus chloris) allowed closer approach as it waited patiently for prey along the Lucinda sandsspit today.


Proved bit too quick on the pounce.


But later adopted driftwoody pose.

Thanks Chris. Hoping the pair might extend me even bit more trust with time.

Lovely! Plenty of tucker out at Lucinda for the kingfishers, I'd imagine.

Gidday Bronwyn: Seem v keen on what I think are spider crabs, fast-moving and near transparent, and ignore abundant soldier crabs.
