KINGFISHER In The Rain.

The first KF capture of this year after many many many hours of sitting and waiting over the past few months.

I have just returned from a 9 hour stint with my very good friends Lyndon ( Pilleyboy ) & Luke ( Parkinson ) at the river.Many thanks fellas,as always the entertainment value was excellent,despite the lack of landings Smile.

Captured in low light early this morning,in the rain which for a time was very heavy.However i'm very happy to have bagged the 1st one of the year & here it is.
