Male Kingfisher, about to return to the nest hole with a fish for his partner, who was sat on eggs.
The fish has been turned around in the male's beak, to ensure the female can swallow it head first.

Many thanks for looking.

A real corker Phil, like the bright colours and movement in this one. A pair of kingfishers are nesting again in the bank near the South Finger hide at Slimbridge, the next possible chance I get I shall be going over to check them out
