Into the breach to do what they do best.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

Pennington Flash has usually come up trumps when looking for Kingfishers. They can be seen zooming around the many water ways and quite often sat on posts or perched on the overhanging vegetation. Lovely to view through the binoculars, but more often than not too far away for my 300mm lens. Last weekend though, I got lucky. Walking down the path towards Pengys hide I could see the little fellow sat on the perch just yards in front of the hide. I only managed a few shots before it dived in for a fish. Some below for you.

That diving picture is brilliant. For the first time ever I got my first kingfisher picture today. I will be putting it on my blog later today. It;s not as clear as yours, but I am so pleased to have a picute at last. From FindlayReplyDelete
Gorgeous they are! Love the diving shot, but they are all terrific, Adam! Hope you have a great week!ReplyDelete
Wonderful images Adam... Beautiful little birds to see.ReplyDelete
Great photos of the Kingfisher. They are beautiful birds but not easy to get close enough to for photos.ReplyDelete
I am truly speechless!!! [and that doesn't happen often, ask my dear husband]....ReplyDelete

I have yet to catch sight of a kingfisher in Britain so I am very jealous when I see your photos they are absolutely amazing. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous looking bird - what a colour scheme they have! Great shots too - i love the closeup and the one with him flying away. I thought kingfishers were only in Australia - i guess it is just the kookaburra sort.ReplyDelete
