Again I’m visiting a photo hide with Rini today. This time it is promising to be a special one. The owner has build the hide next to a kingfisher nest. He told us that there are young kingfishers within the nest and so the parents will be flying on and off with fish.
There is a small branch right next to the nest entrance and hopefully the kingfishers will use this to rest on.
The waiting doesn’t take long today. The birds keep coming with little fishes in their beaks. Every time they land on the little branch for a couple of seconds before entering the nest. Unfortunately they are never sitting still next to each other but we are glad with the pictures we are having right now.
Next to the hide there is a table with some wood on it. This is a good location to picture other bird that hang around here. Lots of tits, finches and a Jay visit regular. The is also a big rat coming up occasionally to steal the remaining pieces of bird food. All in all it was a nice day with some great pictures.
