Travelling  Cape Leveque road last night saw my first Dollarbird for the
season.  Got home in the dark and was greeted by the resident pair of
barking owls and they continued to call seemingly every time I woke.
I haven't been at Djarindjin for over a week and this morning the blue
winged kookaburras were flying from a branch near my bedroom and hitting
beak on curved trunk of tree repeatedly.  When I got up there was no hollow
there where they were making contact, but there may be a hollow at the end
of that trunk/branch.   I have seen sacred kingfishers calling and flying
repeatedly to the lip of hollow early in breeding season, but as I stated
there is no hollow where they were landing.

At morning cuppa, there was a sacred kingfisher calling, which then came and
sat in tree in yard.

A very pleasant welcome home. (this is not to mention the grey crowned
babblers, yellow tinted honeyeaters, brown honeyeaters, white gaped
honeyeaters and willie wagtails which pretty much are always around.
