(Pandion cristatus) Wild. I think this is a male. Anyway, definitely a different bird to the other photos here.

Different subspecies I'd say. Field Guide to the Birds of Australia (Simpson & Day) says "Band of brown mottling across chest light in male, heavier in female". The pair in the flight shot would be the female taking off and the male (this photo is a close up of it) still perched. I notice the females tend also to be a lighter brown.
