We used to have Kingfishers in the yard every Summer but I haven't seen one for years. It was so exciting to see one on the back fence this afternoon chatting with a Willy Wagtail. I tried to get a photo but couldn't get close enough to get a decent one.


Later this afternoon I was out watching my wonderful husband dig some of my new Herb Garden and three kingfishers flew over the yard!!!!  It's nice to see them back.

Hi Jackie, It's great to see such a lovely bird... My hubby was walking our dogs one morning and saw a Kingfisher sitting on a street sign- lucky, hubby had his camera! What an amazing bird- we don't see them too often here. Enjoy your special visitors- I hope they stay a while! :) Barb x
