Australian Animal Collection – Kingfisher

Australian kingfishers have a unique hunting technique called “bill-clicking.” When they spot a prey, they rapidly snap their bills shut, creating a loud clicking sound. This sound stuns or disorients the prey, making it easier for the kingfisher to catch its meal!

Kingfishers are not considered endangered in Australia. In fact, Australia is home to several species of kingfishers. While some species of kingfishers may face localized threats due to habitat loss or degradation, overall, they are not currently at risk of extinction in Australia. However, it is important to note that conservation efforts and habitat preservation are crucial to ensure the long-term survival of these beautiful birds.

Nail art

Some more cute nail art I’ve done. The Christmas nails are probably part of my all time favourites. I love Christmas, it’s my favourite time of year! Gathering around with the family. Christmas in Australia and the UK are so totally different. In Aussie we wear flip flops and swimmers to a BBQ. More than likely we’ve been swimming at the beach already in the morning. In the UK, obviuously we have the fire going and lots of food in the oven. It’s a lot more stressful in the UK I must say, it’s more of a production. I do miss an Aussie Christmas but dare say once we move home I’ll miss a UK Christmas too!
