Sadly no photo to accompany this as it was over in seconds, but I was delighted to see a kingfisher in the garden today.
I should start be being clear that I don’t have some grand estate with a wood, river, and large lakes. I have a small suburban garden with a small pond.
So, while watching the cricket this morning, I had to do a double take as a flash of blue outside drew my attention.
A kingfisher had briefly alighted on a plant pot by the pond. It took a glance at the frozen water and was away.
I doubt this will ever be repeated, but it will always be a great moment.
