Kingfisher

By SurreyHillsMan      
After failing to find a Kingfisher on my local patch Richard, (Mossyoak) very kindly invited me to share his hide with him on his stomping ground and following a wait of just under two hours, bingo!

Not a patch on Richardís work but Iím reasonably happy with the result.. we took my Dadís garden fork but she wasnít interested in that, just the perch furthest away from us Smile

Thanks for looking and the ccís on yesterdays ďMan At WorkĒ
