Photo Hide........

10 Nov - A morning visit booked in a photo hide in Worcestershire, and we were fortunate with the weather, sunny intervals and not too windy. The morning session was on a small river where Kingfishers regularly fish and we were fortunate to have 4 visits from the bird over a 4h period, each time perching for a minute or 2 on a small branch approximately 5m from the hide - superb views of this stunning bird, surprisingly small in close up, and an all-dark bill so a male. I managed to capture the bird in sunlight, and especially in the morning the light was at a nice angle. In the afternoon we had good views of a male Kestrel feeding and perching on posts also in good sunlight, a beautiful bird at close quarters. Altogether a very successful day.
