Light house birding trip ...

Raptor watch ... was expecting sky full of raptors, only saw 5 different birds on the day. The light-house was not open to the public, entrance granted only with written permissions cutting short the trip due to extreme hot sun.

Raptor on a far-away tree top ...

Raptor in-flight ...

White-throated Kingfishers
Halcyon smyrnensis

But elsewhere ... kingfisher

White-breasted Waterhen
Amaurornis phoenicurus

... the usually shy Wak-wak crossing the road

... another raptor drying the wings before calling it a day

Collared Kingfisher
Todiramphus chloris

... supper for the king-fisher, posing for caligraphy art work
