A downpour just as I was about to leave for work gave me a couple of hours with the camera until it dried out!
As I approached the perch the female Kingfisher was on it and 2 Chiffchaffs on the other stick. Things were looking good!
2 hours later and she only came in for about a minute!
I moved up to another spot where she fishes and perches more often though a tiny bit too far too photograph without using a converter. After 15 mins she came in and shot off very quick.
There are now 2 birds using this area as they were chasing each other back and fore but not stopping
In the coming days i`ll set up a hide and place a perch or two closer. This I feel is the answer to some good shots, but only when there is no wind and good light!


  1. Superb shots Steve, great light.

  2. Lovely shots!
    I agree with Paul, the light is perfect!
    I had a male on my lake until last season... He killed himself in the plant nursery down the hill and he hasn't been yet replaced by another one.
    Quite sad!
