I spent a couple of days at Meresands Woods trying to take some reaonable shots of Kingfisher. This is a reliable site, but it is very much a waiting game. Frequently the Kingfishers can be seen but are too far away to take a decent picture and things were not helped this year by the dreadful Summer., so very often the sky was very grey and overcast. I made my observations from the Rufford Hide. The first two photographs were taken with the Kingfisher on a perch a little too far away from my position but it still showed off this attractive little bird quite reasonably.
