Took a little stroll by the canal recently and was delighted to see this adorable kingfisher flitting about! It’s the first time I’ve been able to capture a decent image of a kingfisher so I was very excited and pleased that it hung around for a while, apparently not bothered by my presence. After a good 10 minutes of watching the kingfisher sit around it flew across the canal onto my side and dove into the water before speeding away down the canal.
Such cute little birds! As you can see it posed in a few different places for me. I think it’s a male as I cannot see any orange on the underside of the beak to indicate female.
Really hope to go out and see it again when the weather clears up!
