A great capture to get two! Is there any chance you can get any closer to them, because it looks like it's a favorite perch they are using.

yes this was a favorite perch they use as i watch them from the other side of the river every day as my school is there, i know of a peninsula that sticks out and is about a meter or two from the perch, they dont usually fish directly from the perch they hover over the water and them drop and fish its great to watch, i hope they wont get scared of my hide.
thanks

Hi Aryan, What i would say is setup your hide and see. If possible set it up about three too four meters from the perch. They may not come back straight away, but they will eventually.

Two!! All I've ever seen are quick glimpses (flashes of blue, where you think to yourself "What was that!?") Smile
