The heat and beginnings of drought are beginning to show in the lowering water level of the reservoir and the rain of dried leaves onto the ground.
The flash of royal blue from the pair of Azure kingfishers which have made the Reserve their home is a welcome contrast to the browns and greens. This one was seen on the western side of the reservoir – you can see it was a successful fishing mission!
According to Birds Australia, these birds form monogamous pairs, nesting in tunnels somewhere in the bank of waterways. The pair located here can often be heard calling throughout the Coral Fern Gully and up into the southern section.
