Same place – another year

A pair of Sacred Kingfishers has returned to nest in the ancient River Red-gum beside the Loddon. Using exactly the same site as last season, the birds are currently incubating – their harsh, scolding calls another sign of summer by the river.

  1. Agree that that last image is spectacular – well captured!

  2. Yes the last image is brilliant, is that a bee or a fly doing the same thing just above the hollow?
