Kingfisher. Playing with her food.

If you’re a small fish at the stream you should now be very afraid.

I’m pretty certain that the female Kingfisher I was seeing up to March 2015 didn’t return to the stream in July 2015. A new female arrived and she had a slightly different way of fishing. Basically she was not as good at it.

Not any more.

Saturday. In a stretch of water about 20 metres long and 2 metres wide. Four dives, four fish. Great fun to watch but pretty hard to capture in camera.
