close-up Kingfisher

… and probably will never be repeated!   After nearly twelve months of little opportunity of having any Kingfisher images of any quality, I was taken aback this last week when a Kingfisher perched close to me – while I was out in the open ! (There is a separate tweet about this, but worth […]

Kestrels, Typhoons, and a few thousand Puffins

A busy ten days photography: Early last week it was good to find out that the Kestrel family I had been monitoring for the last few months had produced two healthy young. They were beginning to show a little independence, so probably had fledged a couple of days before I was there. At one point […]
