Looking at the exif it says the shot was taken at 1/100th. This really is not fast enough with a 300mm lens. Try upping the iso to at least 400. Finding a way to support the camera will also help, but as you do not state whether any was used it is not possible to advise on the next step up from current.

Hey Harvey!!! A great capture Smile I can't really advise... Tripod and quicker shutter perhaps a remote to reduce any jolt of the camera....

I like it none the less... And a wee bit jealous x x

If this was shot on a tripod did you remember to turn off the image stabilisation?

This is an excellent shot Harvey.

This is quite noisy for the ISO you are on? Not sure why, most probably something to do with the coldness of the weather.

Don't know if this is applicable to Kingfishers but certain feathers on an owl are virtually impossible to make look sharp as they are very soft to allow for silent flight, otherwise if you're already on a tripod lock up mirror and use cable release, esp. when using long lenses at 1/100sec. Also the soft light that's made a good even exposure hasn't helped sharpness- as the lights so soft.
Fantastic picture of a kingfisher, lovely colours and this image looks pretty sharp to mee. Nice one.

I'm impressed. Would be pleased to get a shot that good. Faster shutter, increased ISO should work. Not a lot more you can do, but to be fair there doesn't seem a lot wrong to me.

Well done

Great picture, well sharp. Someone commented about the fine feathers, and I think that the sharpness problem is there myself. So ether flash or a shorter shutter speed.
