This is only the second time I’ve ever seen a Kingfisher. Sometimes you can hear their machine gun calls in the trees. They’re tiny, and fast moving. We never saw the male but heard the calls. This female was hunting in the pond. She would dive then return to one of the surrounding trees. I am now fairly obsessed with photographing them. I follow many Twitter accounts from the UK and Canada that post pictures of them on a regular basis. These and the cormorants in the river are my new favorite targets.
