Had a sighting near Sarehole Mill today :)

It was the other end by the car ford. Was perched on a tree by the side of the river then flew over the ford and under the pedestrian bridge!

River was very low - less than 50cm on the ford marker. Wondered if this will change the habit of the kingfishers?

Brilliant video �� Back from my hols on the South Coast. Great birding at Rye Harbour. Broke my arm at Pett Levels. So interesting times!

River Cole this morning; 6AM. I saw an adult Kingfisher with a fish. I saw a flash of blue go past. I thought not much was happening and I'd leave them to it. Walked around the corner and there were 3 Kingfisher fledglings, sat bobbing away. Looked closer the other way and there were another 2 bobbing away. 5 Kingfisher fledglings! Great!

Amazing - looks like I’m out of action for a few weeks - so lots of time to walk the river:)

It took me two long but enjoyable walks to find one.
Greet Mill meadows to Scribbers lane.
Juvenile Kingfisher down from Trittiford.
A calling adult along the back of Trittiford.
Same as on the River Rea, a Chiffchaff calling.
Not heard one for sometime.

Saturday; calling Kingfisher along the River Cole by Trittiford. It sat in the same tree as the previous weeks juvenile. Maybe the juvenile has been chased away? Then yesterday, 2 Kingfisher calling. Obviously adults. Maybe a late pair?

Friday afternoon, a Kingfisher along the River Cole.
I found several small, KF sized fish on a slow bend.

Great walk today - no great white but highlights were.

Shoveler, pair gosander and two great kingfisher sightings. Light was not good for photos unfortunately!
