These shots were all taken from Ramsdale's Hide where a set of branches have been placed in the water at suitable viewing distances for photographs. I saw two Kingfishers here today and I believe that there are at least four still about.
The light at Ramsdale's Hide is against you most of the time and so most of these shots have the bird in shadow. But it is just about as close as you'll ever get to a Kingfisher at a public hide.
On my way back to the car I stopped off at Tom Edmonson's Hide where I saw this Grey Heron begging for loose change! I had to double-take when I saw it from a distance as I thought it was a plastic bag!
