    How to photograph a kingfisher
    Find kingfishers, observed their habits, find where they fish, built a perch holder, find perches and catch fish buy a container to house them, and improved the background, clear trees. Tempt them to an area which is good for photography with the sun in the right place. Get the kingfishers used to the hide, get permission to go on private land, get a NE licence, and spent months keeping the kingfishers coming in to an area.

    I have photographed kingfishers in the following locations: Dinton Pastures nr Woodley, Berkshire, Upton Warren Midlands. Seven oaks in Kent,The London wetland centre.
    and in Hampshire Moor Green nr Yateley, and Farnborough.
    All the above are at public nature reserves.
    I have seen kingfishers by most of the rivers in Hampshire, Berkshire, and Surrey.
    They are in Bushy park in Richmond. Slimbridge, Arundel
    They are everywhere.
    Bath, Dorset, in fact all over the south of England and Wales.

    My current location is on private land close to Basingstoke where I live.
    An advantage as I can get very close.
    If you are looking for kingfishers ask a fisherman. He will tell you.

    Clear trees! That's not very ethical, after all kingfishers are woodland birds.

    Should not make comments when you do not know the facts.
    The trees which were cleared were blown into the river by a storm, They interrupted the flow of the stream.
    With the aid of chest waders and a saw we cleared the damage.
    I will post a photo rto help you to understand.
    What we did was totally ethical.
