I spent a few hours at the weekend waiting for Kingfishers to show at Low Barns, which they did, but mainly on the far side of the lake (inaccessible), however one of the young ones decided to sit on the perching poles provided by the centre, then move onto the small island where it caught a couple of fish.
I got a great video of it but I am unable to upload it on this site for some reason, I took a couple of photos with the canon camera, as the battery in my nikon on the scope failed (I had just charged it up).
While I was waiting for the kingfisher the Greater Spotted Woodpeckers provided great opportunities for photos. So all in all it was a good morning.

I will attempt to put the kingfisher video onto youtube. Success!
