During the Spring and Summer the local Kingfishers move to quieter parts of Hartham and King's Meads, but in the Winter time they move to good fishing spots nearer to the centre of town and as such are much easier to see. The following pictures are from three recent visits. I was lucky to get this young male against a dark background.
There was a lot of calling and interaction with the male and a female spending some time in the marina.
The yellow leaves sometimes provided a colourful backdrop.
And fishing together.
I even remembered to take some video clips!
The fast flowing water in the background allowed for some uncluttered shots.
The female was almost as obliging.
And a few others to finish.
Such beautiful birds, and looking forward to some more photo opportunities.
