Went for an hour's walk yesterday around the lake at the La Trobe Uni
Wetlands. While walking along the bank adjacent to the Cricket oval, i
spotted a Common Myna perched on a dead tree branch on the swamp bank,
but then through my binos only a foot away was a Kingfisher. I had about
15-20 seconds viewing, and iam reasonably sure it was a Forest
Kingfisher, mainly blue and white. Has anyone spotted these around the
area?, could i be mistaking it for a Sacred?, ( not enough evidence of
Buff belly and green on wings for mine ). Please let me know!.
