This is our first record of the Belted Kingfisher (Megaceryle alcyon) at Race Rocks. It came today from the Ecoguardian, Alex Fletcher. We see these birds frequently in Pedder Bay and along the Coastline of Taylor Beach, but so far we have not had a record from Race Rocks.
Species: M. alcyon
Megaceryle alcyon (Linnaeus, 1758)
