It was wow! when I was driving with colleagues to a birding exercise when I spotted this beautiful Kingfisher. The bird was sitting on an open tree a few meters from the main road. I switched of the engine and quickly took my camera from the bag, made several shots before going out of the car for more photos. This made my day!

That's a grand picture you've taken of this kingfisher Nick; not a species we see coming in very often.

Many thanks for showing him to us lad.
