My observations of the bird life in the Gippsland area.

Kingfishers and Kookas.
I was standing near the entrance to Lake Guyatt looking along flooding creek towards Sale, when I heard a squeak and out flew an Azure Kingfisher. It landed on a post adjacent to the overflow from Lake Guthridge, it then flew up the creek. It came back a few minutes later, and I had enough time to take some photos. Looks like they are nesting along the outflow as another came out and both were sitting in the same post, they were to quick for me to get a photo.
Saw this Kooka at Herb Guyatt Reserve yesterday sitting about 20 feet away.
