I was very pleased to see a kingfisher return to perch on a regular basis and fish in front of the hide today. After such a harsh winter there were none of these birds left to watch. Its nice to see the return of this beautitul bird again.
Managed to get a few shots of prey passes this morning, The bottom picture was taken between the showers and was quite a bit closer than usual. I have just arrived home from holiday and missed the fledging of the young, I set off on the day the birds began to fledge. I was happy to see they are still around the nest site and hope to catch up with them again inbetween work before they leave the area. The top picture is one of the juvenile birds.
