Author's notes

When I entered the ANBG proper I was not looking and spooked a Laughing Kookaburra that had been on the ground. It flew off to some shrubs where it was mobbed by two Noisy Miners who drove it further away. I then noticed another Kookaburra sitting in a shrub. I carefully approached it, as it was low, so I did not want to scare it off. I thought I had spooked it as it took-off, but fortunately just to land on a nearby lawn where it found some food, photo one. It then returned to an awning where it took up a perch.
