Bramhall Kingfisher,alcedo atthis . Explored
Hate to admit how many hours I spent waiting to get close to this Kingfisher.Stood in one spot to get this shot in heavy rainshowers and at one stage hail.
This shot was taken in reasonable light,just after the hail had stopped but in a strong wind that kept the the stem it was perched on in constant motion.
Five days of waiting and watching finally paid off -thank you Kingfisher
