Went to Low Barns to see if Kingfishers were about, when I arrived there were a few cars parked (8:00am on a Sunday) so, it was obvious that they were. When I arrived in the hide it was busy. I managed to squeeze a spot and eventually the Kinfishers showed on the opposite side of the lake. There were 3 of them!
They spent most of the time on the other side, in the sun. But eventually one came closer and sat on the Island 30 yards away from the hide. I managed a couple of quick shots before it flew. Too many lenses were sticking out of the window I reckon. It came close a couple of more times but never perched for long.

- I have been digiscoping for around 18 years now and through persistence and good equipment I am getting great results. I use a Swarovski 80hd spotting scope and a Sony RX100 camera which has just replaced my old faithful Nikon P5100. The majority of my bird watching takes place in County Durham in England which has a variety of different habitats from coast to moors. Digiscoping is great because it allows me to get good photos without disturbing birds. VIEW THE LATEST PHOTOBOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE
