Kingfishers

For a while now I have wanted to get some decent images of Kingfishers. I have walked by the rivers and sat in hides but to no avail, until last Thursday. It was a bright day and I felt optimistic as I made my way to Lackford Lakes. I headed for the 'double decker ' hide and waited. There had been sightings earlier in the morning. I hoped they would appear again. Within half an hour a Kingfisher was perched and the shutters were being released. It flew to a perch closer to where I was seated and I was able to get some great shots. Next time I'll hopefully get some shots of a Kingfisher fishing!
