The Ducking Wren

Spent Five hours at Tehidy Country Park yesterday morning looking to complete my 'Kingfisher with fish ' project but no show,  The story goes that it has not been seen since last Monday, Perhaps this female has moved off to a nesting territory earlier than expected,  All I got for my efforts was this ducking Wren feeding on fresh water shrimps which is behaviour that I quite often witness in my Garden Pond.   ( I heard on Sunday 22nd that the Kingfisher was seen several times on Thursday I9th)

What an amazing little bird the wren can be,  On this occasion I watched it duck for three shrimps in quick succession before flitting off around the pond looking for more,
