258/365 – Look what turned up!!

Usually when I go looking for kingfishers I often get dippers. Today I went looking for dippers and guess what turned up!! I’ve never seen one here before although I’ve often thought it would be a good spot for one.

      It’s a tricky spot this one as they’re very well hidden, however they are also very close!!

    Brilliant! You never quite know what you’re going to get with nature. They’re obviously doing quite well in your area which is encouraging – we spent a week in Suffolk and found out that kingfisher populations had been heavily hit by the Beast from East. We were very lucky to see one at Lackford Lakes though, which is apparently normally one of the best places in the country to see them (so we read).

      It took me awhile to find them this year but now i can’t seem to stop which is good. I’ve seen pictures of them before from lackford.
