Sun 17 Nov Buff-breasted Paradise-Kingfisher 950metres above sea level, Mt Lewis
Apologies for this late posting - One adult bird (looked like a male) flew across road 10mtrs ahead of me when birding with Judy Leitch. As far as I'm aware this is the highest altitude for this species to be recorded on Mt Lewis. (Moderator Note:- There has been a few sightings at this altitude over the past 3-4 years, presumable adults moving through as there are no termite mounds for nesting in at this altitude).
