Kingfishers

Just a couple of shots of a female kingfisher carrying food to her nest.

This is their second attempt to nest as the first was abandoned due to high water levels and thick mud-laden waters.

Both birds are now feeding the young but it's not an ideal site for photography as it's amongst a lot of exposed tree roots where the bank is fast crumbling into the river.

These birds are classed as Schedule 1 breeding birds and I do hold a licence to photograph them at or near the nest site.
