Female Kingfisher

I managed to spend an hour following this stunning female kingfisher along the Grand Union canal at Northchurch, Berkhamsted.  She only dived once during this time which was unsuccessful however, she was more than happy to provide plenty of photo opportunities.

Kingfisher

Yes, these shots may be at distance however, unless a staged shot, kingfishers are very difficult to see at close quarters.  Captured in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.

Common Kingfisher

Here are further shots of a common kingfisher hunting for fish, taken from a hide in Worcestershire.   As you can see she did not return to the perch with her catch but chose instead to dine in peace at another location.

Kingfisher

Another few shots of a Kingfisher taken at a hide in Worcestershire.  They were taken mid-afternoon in better conditions with only light rain and improving light.  No fish this time!
