WILDWATCH; by ANNE WILKINSON.
I will never forget our first sight of the little kingfisher. Yes, that really is its name, and it is tiny.
Indeed, it is hard to picture a kingfisher which is only 12 centimetres long, but that is all this little gem is. This measurement includes its strong, black beak. It is Australia’s smallest kingfisher, and its latin name is almost as long as it is, Ceyx pusillus.
But back to that wonderful sighting.
