Kingfisher with fish
Description: Have been prepairing my Kingfisher walls again and hoping for a new nesting season. It is difficult after 3 harsh winters as numbers have dropped from 1200 pairs to around 150-200 pairs in our country.

Still having seen a Kingfisher in my own village recently and having heard several over at my old nesting sites I have good hopes for this Spring/Summer.

Here's one from the old files wich I had not yet processed...
