Kingfisher

By Maiwand
Kingfisher (alcedo atthis)
Not had a great deal of luck finding Kingfishers on my patch this year but things did start to look up when I finally managed to bag a couple of shots like this a few days ago. A lovely bird but the area seems a bit drab when he is not around. Would have liked a better perch but this is all he allowed me.
I hope you may enjoy looking.
My really grateful thanks for all the fantastic votes and c/c's granted to the Black Kite. Particular thanks to julia (natureshaven),Pamela (pamelajean), Richard (mossyoak), Louise (Louise Morris), Geoff (featherfriend)and Dave (craggwildlife) for the UA's. Most flattering.

Ron

A very creditable shot, Ron: guess you have to go with whatever it chooses to perch on.
