Kingfisher | by Ian Lambert
Back to photostream


A Common Kingfisher sits on a tree stump in the middle of the main lake at Mere Sandswood Wildlife Trust, Rufford, Lancashire.


I first discovered there were Kingfishers at Mere Sandswood from their website back in March 2008. So I decided it would be my task to photograph one. After 7 or 8 visits over the spring and summer without any joy, I was finally rewarded for my persistence this weekend. It has been well worth each visit without success to finally see a Kingfisher and have the oportunity to photograph it.
