We left at 06.20 this morning, which also happens to be our wedding anniversary. A lot was riding on this 'twitch'!! We were the first to arrive and went straight to the hide where I thought the kingfishers would come. Literally 2 minutes later I heard the familiar call and a few seconds later a kingfisher alighted on the post nearby, stayed for 3 or 4 seconds and flew off before I could get a shot!!
I set my camera up and expected to wait an hour or so for his next visit. 5 minutes later he re-appeared and I took a few shots before he dived in and came out with a small fish. This time he stuck around and shook the fishlet before swallowing it on the post. It couldn't have been better!! Lynne very pleased!
Here are the best of the shots.
