KIMCOMANIA
KINGFISHER AT FECKENHAM

.I had a wonderful day at a lake near Feckenham. It was in October, 2010, the sun was shining and there was no wind!! I had been told that occasionally Kingfisher appear at this lake - but only rarely. I was prepared for a long wait. However after only 90 minutes -it appeared - quite close and thereafter on five different occasions throughout the day. These pictures are a result of that visit and were taken with a 7d camera and a 400mm lens.

 

Turning the catch -

 

 

Take off!
LITTLE GREBE
Whilst waiting for the Kingfisher - a Little Grebe appeared on and off throughout the day

making a successful catch for lunch

and later - without the reflection of the blue sky

 
a Heron flew over but didn't stop!

and finally - a Wren appeared - just infront of the hide for a couple of minutes
