Long Time No See

It had indeed been sometime since I had seen a kingfisher.They now only seem to visit Mere Sands Wood Nature Reserve occasionally .This used to be a very reliable place to see these colourful and delightful little birds.There had however been recent reports that kingfishers were showing well at the Ron Barker Hide at Martin Mere .So yesterday afternoon that was my plan of action to visit Martin Mere to catch up with kingfishers.

I duly arrived and visited Tony Disley at the In Focus shop.Tony had obtained some recent video of the kingfishers and later I caught up with Susan and Peter Wilson who had just been watching and photographing the kingfishers.They were therefore still showing well and I was to spend the next couple of hours or so at the Ron Barker Hide.

It was a very pleasant afternoon and from time to time the kingfishers would put in an appearance perching alongside the ditch in front of the hide.I managed some reasonable images and a selection are shown above.It was nice to see these lovely birds again and it was a very enjoyable with good weather and good company and everyone enjoyed the sightings of these special birds.Thanks for looking in and I will be back soon with more of Lancashire's wildlife.
