Danielle’s Kingfisher

Saturday, August 1st 2009

Danielle has sent us this lovely picture of a young Kingfisher which was ringed on Saturday. It has probably only been out of the nest for a week or two. It is too early to tell whether it is a male or female as the beak colour won't develop for a few months.


The cattle were having a lazy time chewing the cud when this photo was taken of Hector at lunchtime.


Elsewhere on the reserve the electricians were here to install the sockets into the workshop. No windows yet, though. We are hopeful for them on Monday.

Two Great Spotted Woodpeckers were fighting on the peanut feeders in the back garden and put on a great aerial display.
