Kingfisher Photography

Kingfisher photography can be a bit of a waiting game whereby known sightings location can remain unvisited for days and weeks at a time,  prey availability, mating behaviour, fatalities and a certain amount of luck can all effect the amount of time that it can take to achieve good portrait images at even well recognised locations such as the RSPB Hide at Ryan's Field Hayle,  I popped into the hide to pick up a few scallops from my friend Peter Tonkin early AM this morning and while throwing a few balls for his trusty dog Woody this  fine female Kingfisher showed on three of her favoured perch points,  Caught two small fish and was away again leaving me with a nice little portfolio and a bag of scallops for my breakfast,  Not a bad start to a Sunday morning !
