Now that is a fish!!

By Lillian  
Female Kingfisher ...got the catch of the day
she ate this one, but is feeding her second lot
of young this year, so was off with a fish for them after this.

just a few inches above the river, on a very hot
and sunny day last week with Alan

V2 is not for the squeamish! killing fish before eating

Thank you Maureen, Robert and Patty for your awards
and to you all for stopping by.

Off out today with my U3A group ..having a curry for lunch!

Yes Barbara, Alan and I have been known to spend a day in the hide waiting for the kingfishers
but that is what nature and wild birds are all about...most of the time rewarded well
My thanks to Fred for your GEA and to Peter and David for your awards
Thank you so much

Thursday is a curry lunch day for me too, so will be off up town shortly for one! Beef madras this week, I think... Tongue
