Hi there, I am kingfisher mad, something about them, guess it's the flight, colour and catching fish. I read the other posts and note there's some sightings in Essex. My sightings this week was one on the Mardyke, North Stifford, Wednesday and Thursday evening last week, got some really bad long distance photo's. A couple weeks before spotted one on the Ingrebourne River, Gaynes Parkway, Upminster
Happy Birding. B
There is a pair nesting at Rainham Marshes RSPB which I saw today - a little patience was needed but both eventually showed in view from one of their hides
I live 200 yards from the ingrebourne at the parkway,I used to see at least 2 quite regular there but haven't for a while.
'Hi mafu - thanks will have to take a visit to Rainham. Thanks also Sniper, yes that's one of them I've seen then on the Ingrebourne at the Parkway - it's up from the playground, usually on a slow bend or by a concrete culvert.
Blimey ; Looks like you lot are/were all loitering around my ol' home patch, or near enough !
Stunned to find that there are/were Kingfishers around my old home area....
Still reeling that ALL those years I lived there (approx' 17-years), I never knew about those Kingfishers !
