Very nice, Flutts! And hard to get photos of because they always try to hide in the foliage or fly away. At least my experience with them lol

So excited!! Just heard an unmistakable call and rushed outside to find a Woodland Kingfisher sitting on our neighbour's aerial!! In over 20 years of living here I've never heard one, never mind seen one!! O\/ O\/
