Yes at last got the kingfisher, have tried since spring, not the best of shots but it was along way away, hand held and cropped hard, still chuffed though. Have a good day.

Like me last week Brian! It is better to have something, saying that this is a much better quality image than mine.

Great Brian, I do believe that makes you happy, just like I was with my first apprentice real bird shot
and I think your kingfisher is a beauty with his fish, against the very becoming backdrop!
