I've been relentlessly hoping every morning for the past couple of months to see the kingfisher up close at Chard res so that I could get it on video. Its absence from the perches outside the hide had been noted as it preferred to spend time either in the far south-west corner or up at the northern end near the dam. That said, both Andy Grinter and Dave Helliar managed to snap it close to the hide the other day (see previous post), so I remained hopeful of getting it on camera and this morning I finally nailed it:
Such great birds to watch, especially when they're this close and hang around for so long.
