TWO horny Aussie birds cause a stir – in a quiet Scottish town.
The Kookaburras’ loud nookie is said to be worrying locals in Kirkcudbright, Dumfriesshire.
The couple, who are native to Australia and New Guinea, also impressed residents with their hunting skills as they swooped down to hunt for frogs, rats and mice.
It is believed that they were once based at the nearby Galloway Wildlife Conservation Park, which is now closed.
A local said: “They’re always there – and making a lot of noise. People can’t believe what they see and hear.”
Since the big-beaked kookaburras first arrived in the area about a month ago, their noisy mating ritual — including a laughing chirp — has become a staple.
They spent some time in a local photographer’s garden who took amazing shots of their antics.
One shows a bird giving its mate a caught mouse – before it comes to feathered frolics.
The snapper said last night: “It’s amazing the noise they make. And it all seems to be part of their mating habits.
“They have an appetite – both for food and for each other. All they seem to do is hunt and mate. Everyone is talking about her here. They are quite an attraction and most don’t want to leave despite the noise.”
At least their noise means former Celtic ace Frank McAvennie – portrayed by Jonathan Watson in Only An Excuse – wouldn’t have to ask, “Where’s the Burdz?”
