Fairburn Male Kingfisher

Taken at RSPB Fairburn Ings. When we arrived we were the first people there and the kingfisher was sat a way off, over time he gradually working his way up the river towards us. Eventually he perched in a tree about 15-20 feet away from us. He then dived, perched again briefly before flying off. That was the last I was to see of this bird in this sport that day.
