Happy ending!

Well, I did say earlier that I was hoping to get a better close-up photo of one of our many Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfishers but I wasn't anticipating getting quite this close! A few minutes ago Peter and I were having coffee here in the office when suddenly there was a thump on the window and there was this very stunned little Kingfisher flopped on the verandah - happily it was only a couple of minutes before it recovered and flew off.

There are now four nesting pairs that we know of on our 30-acre property and there are probably more - much of the land is rainforested so the nesting mounds and birds are not all easy to spot.
