The Kingfishers were a remarkable sight, one remained sitting in the hedge for a few seconds allowing me to approach quite closely, whilst the other 4 flew off together down the stream. A family party I assume.


  1. That's a very good mornings work Colin, epecially the Kingfishers, amazingly I've yet to see o0ne this year. All the best Gordon.

  2. Thanks Gordon. Ironically, whereas Kingfishers were seen daily in September, they'd become very scarce at the mere during October, so 5 today was a complete surprise.
