Great pose and background

I thought at first your title was Queen of the Rovers,Lillian
and Annie Walker was returning too Coronation Street.
Or even perhaps Roy of the Rovers was not quite the manly footballer I was led to believe !!
Super shot.

What a super shot Lillian. I do not have one image of a kingfisher. It's a pity because I love them.

We are partially packed and I expect the house will be ours two weeks tomorrow. As yes I have not got a removal man booked... Why will people not answer there phones or return calls. It is so frustrating.

I suppose the real Queen of the river sadly now only lives in a book,
and Guinevere is the new Queen.

I've always wanted to bag a kingfisher.
Never achieved it yet.
Lovely image and I love your observations
on the bird's movements also.
