This Kingfisher makes a noise in the locality. I was not familiar with its call until recently when I actually watched it shouting near our window!! Now I can identify its call from a neighbouring tree. It tries to steal fish from my pond.. it has actually done so before, but evaded being photographed. This time, my younger DD was able to shoot it up from amazingly close range when we were not at home. Here, it has found not a fish, but a juvenile skink - they are found near the tree there.
