Spent a few hours at Clara Vale to try and get some Kingfisher pictures, (thanks for the reminder Susan - its about time I had some more pics of Kingfishers). I got there pretty much at first light, then spent 3 hours waiting for a Kingfisher to show, but it did show, for about 10 minutes and it caught 5 fish.
There was plenty of activity around the bird hide too with Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Treecreepers, a few Wrens, loads of Bullfinches, Siskins and all the usual tits. A Sparrowhawk whizzed passed the feeding station but didnt get anything. The light was not good and I made the error of upping my ISO setting on the camera (an old camera which doesnt handle higher ISO settings well), so pictures are a little grainy.
