AN immigrant from Down Under certainly seems to have taken a liking to Huddersfield.
A kookaburra - a bird native to Australia - has been spotted near Rowley Lane School at Lepton.
And the sighting came more than eight months after a kookaburra was spotted only a few hundred yards away, in Fenay Bridge.
The latest sighting was by from Mark Powell, who was dropping off a child at the school.
"I saw it in the trees near the gate and thought it looked very distinctive.
"It then flew across towards the school and I could clearly see what sort of bird it was."
The earlier sighting was in trees off Fenay lane in May last year.
There have also been sightings in Kirkheaton.
* The birds are native to Eastern Australia
* They are known as Laughing Jackasses because their call sounds like insane cackling
* The birds have short dark brown and cream bodies with long bills
* In their natural environment they feed on lizards and snails.
* If this bird is living wild in Lepton, it is probably feeding on insects and small rodents
