Quite an upmarket kingfisher having chosen this rather expensive perch: what a fabulous shot, Alan, and no wonder Sony are anxious to use it for publicity.
I have never even seen a kingfisher and I had thought they were a bit bigger than they obviously are, but with it sitting where it is one can appreciate the size precisely.
