Sacred Kingfishers nesting beside Werribee River

A pair of Sacred Kingfishers was discovered nesting beside the Werribee River, beside the old Pinkerton ruins. They were constantly flying in & out of a hole in the tree branch, & making angry noises. Their continually loud calling gave them away. Unfortunately the hollow in which they are nesting faces the other side of the river! There were numerous small Garden Skinks scurrying through the grass so there should have been plenty of food for them. Starlings are nesting in another hollow just over a metre away!
