Kingfisher Blues Part 2

Following my earlier trip to Rye Meads nature reserve I travelled up there again on the 17th April hoping to add to my images of the Kingfishers there. The day was bright and sunny and this is reflected in the above images. There was however less action with the male and female Kingfishers taking it in turns to sit on a pole in the middle of the lake about 50 metres away. For good measure I have included a flight photo which was almost taken at the correct speed and an image of a Kestrel with what looks like a freshly caught vole taken back to its specially constructed nesting box. Incidently this box has been placed about 50 metres above the sandbank constructed for the Kingfishers lets hope there is not a nasty twist in this particular story.
