This morning looking out of the window at the pouring rain and the trees bending over in the gusty winds I saw a flash of blue over our pond. It couldn’t be I thought….a kingfisher! So all day I have been watching and waiting and by golly it is a KINGFISHER ! It perches on a small branch which overhangs the water and it preens itself and looks down into the murky depths below…sadly there doesn’t seem much for it to feed on as it quickly takes flight and disappears down into the cutting by the hedge. I’m so excited!
Sadly the photo is very disappointing because it was taken through a window quite some way from the pond…but honestly it is our very own kingfisher! Maybe David Cowdry will paint a picture of it!
