The King and Fly

This evening I watched a battle of supremacy for the perch at the hide. A female Kingfisher turned up with the male somewhere in a nearby Willow Tree. She successfully caught , three fish - Bullhead, Perch (?) and Minnow.

All the while she was having to contend with a pair of Spotted Flycatchers who were fluttering about the perch annoying her. She eventually had enough and flew off on a full stomach.
