I saw my first Kingfisher the other day. It was a dull day and I was walking over a half-rotten railway sleeper bridge on a small river. I was keeping my eyes on the holes I was avoiding when I saw a splash of colour zoom past. Amazing birds. To photograph one like you my dreams

Its so wierd only yesterday I was telling myself to find out if you were still on the site I so missed your fish pictures. I don't spend much time viewing these days but on the rare occasion I visited an old friend I saw you had commented. So job done I went back & saw your latest. No change there still impecable quality outstanding in fact. Nice to see you are still around. Great great work.
