This tiny Kookaburra looked so wet and forlorn at the Abbotsbury Sub Tropical Gardens in Dorset, had to clamber through wet shrubs and muddy terrain to get a pot shot of this little fella.

Kookaburras, known as the Laughing Jackasses of Australia, are from the family Kingfishers. Similar to other kingfishers, Kookaburras have a stout and compact body, short neck, rather long and pointed bill and short legs.

Kookaburras are 17 inches in height, the upper parts dark brown, the wings spotted gray-blue. A white band separates the head from the body. There is a dark stripe through the eye, and the under parts are white. The strong bill is black.
