Today a Kingfisher from a couple of weeks ago, he had just missed a fish and the water droplet is still on his beak.

Thanks to for all the attention on the Water vole upload, especially to Ronnie, Richard, Sylvia and Tom for their UA. Please feel free to comment, click and critique; all most welcome.
