Bin Fishin !

By KBan  
Hi everyone, the title here is very fitting as I've been fishing for a Kingfisher shot for the last five years !!!

Taken in that local park.

I've bagged a few so be prepared for a few more uploads after this.

Thanks for your comments and clicks on my last upload.

Keith

To get one of these is difficult enough, but one with a fish is a bonus.
Still to get one myself, so very envious.

if this is your first KF well done to get the fish as well - you must be chuffed to bits, not many about at the moment but I did manage a couple of shots myself a couple of days ago to the envy of all my friends on EPZ
