Go Away!

By Lillian  
Female Kingfisher had caught her meal,

and for the first time this year another kingfisher turned up
and sat within feet of her... she screeched and raised her wings
but never released that fish... gulp and it was gone!
then she chased him/her off..all happened so fast
we never had a chance to see, male or female.... hopefully
her new partner for the season.

another very relaxing day on the river

my thanks to you all for the for your comments and awards
on the unusual frog yesterday... tomato frog still to come.... eventually
but have some animals I have promised to put on.... a request...

This is the most exiting time of the year, it's like waiting for the curtain to go up.
I had a call this morning from a friend saying his kingfisher pair had arrived.
Last year his and mine breed simultaneously.
Morgan in Lillian's photo has been in the vicinity of the nest site since she was born first brood last spring.
She is waiting for a mate. I hope yesterdays bird was him?
