Another Kingfisher

Something really dramatic and unprecedented has occurred.
I have seen and photographed two different Kingfishers in one week.
Normally I would only actually see this species (or a blue flash) as it disappeared across a lake or along a river.

This female below was flying between two perches on a small stretch of river and I was able to get some shots at the nearest perch to me.

  1. Wow, what are the chances of that happening?
    Some may call it luck, others might say it's being greedy...but whatever it is, I reckon you should get those lottery numbers in a bit sharpish!...[;o)

    1. Thanks Trevor. Yes I won £2.80. I don't know what to do with it all.

  2. Better buy a lottery ticket this week! Some great shots - I'd be happy to get such clear sightings let alone managing to take such lovely shots.

  7. Beautiful pictures of this beautiful female kingfisher.
    Unfortunately, I have not photographed kingfishers this year.
    I also wish you a few beautiful Christmas days and all the best for 2019.
