I've been watching a Kingfisher recently, having discovered an area that one likes to frequent. It gives a bit of cover, so I am not too visible to the bird. It happily flies in to perch and then does a spot of fishing. Now obviously, with a bit of cover it was quite difficult to get clean shots without branches in the way, but that still beats watching it fly off to the other side of the universe before you've even caught sight of it.
This was my best effort on a very grey day. Can't wait to get back after lockdown in better light.
These are what you usually get to see, if you're lucky. Very twiggy but such a lovely bird.
Top shot is a stunner! I've been lucky to have frequent sightings locally near where I live in west London suburbs this year-more than for some years. They really crashed after the beast from the east.ReplyDelete

Beautiful colours on that bird, great photos!ReplyDelete
Spectacular shots, especially the first photo! The colors are...dazzling!ReplyDelete
Dear Adam, the first image is beautiful. I had a resident Greyheaded Kingfisher in my Tanzanian garden. Ironically, it didn't catch fish but grasshoppers and lizards instead. Here in the Central Berg I heard Woodland Kingfisher last summer. I dashed out with my camera but saw it flying off in the direction of the river below the farmyard. Thanks for sharing .
