A frustrating week of waiting
Its been tough with few visits to the perch this week. There appears to be a male and female Kingfisher visiting the perch. I wonder if its on the edge of both their territories.
I have done some scouting and found more perch locations and been watching them fish from a distance.
On arrival this afternoon the female was waiting for me. Wish I had arrived earlier. I had to lay down prone on the ground and wait for it to fly off.
Lots of birds on show throughout the week -Little Egrets, Female Goosanders, Cormorants, Mute Swans, Canadian Geese, Buzzards and Common Sandpipers.
The overhead sky remains populated with Swallows and Martins. I guess there is plenty of insects around early in the autumn and they are stocking up on fuel before migrating next week. I continue to spot Dragonflies around the hide and lots of midges.
