Its been back to work this week after a few weeks off and with no time at all to get out with the camera at all, I managed one final session last week at Grove Ferry where I made a visit to the Feast hide to see if the Kingfisher would arrive. I had put in a few hours in the few days before where each time the Kingfishers of which I saw 3 at one point were present but always teased by either flying past the posts and not landing or more frustratingly, landing and fishing in full view on the far side of the pool. Eventually after 5 hours of sitting and waiting, the male flew in for c10 minutes to fish on the posts outside the hide. The sun had moved around a bit by now and was quite tricky at times to get the whole bird in the sun but what a treat to just watch and photograph this stunner from close range. He sat patiently and dived twice with no luck and after a while moved off further to the back of the pool again. All the hours of waiting finally paying off thankfully, hopefully a return visit again soon if they continue to show. You can never have enough Kingfisher shots!
