Following a tip off from an angling friend, I Googled the location, (as you do) and choose this morning to take a road trip, as the weather was favourable (rain tomorrow).
Following some 'Text message' instructions Aussie & I set off.
En-route we bumped into Ian walking his daughters dog, we walked & talked as he knew where I needed to be.
On arrival, there was an adult kingfisher sat atop a perch, but by the time I had swung the camera up it had flown away.
Set up tripod, gimbal, & loaded camera into its cradle & we waited - nothing.
A wagtail & fly (on the kingfishers perch), seemed to be all was alive!
Ian continued his walk.
Lady luck was definitely not on my side. So I set up & played the waiting game again.
Then a familiar bird call, searching the bushes, a flash of blue caught my eye as the kingfisher turned around. Eureka, a kingfisher fledgling!!
