A great day in the hide on my first visit. I was there for about 6 or 7 hours and I was worried I might not see much but as soon as I sat down the kingfisher came over to the perch. Had about 7 visits from the male kingfisher, the longest stay on the perch was 35 minutes, then it came back again 15 minutes later for it's last visit maybe 10-15 minutes on the perch. The longest gap waiting for the kingfisher was 1 hour 15 minutes. Mark showed me how to change the perches. I took 1694 photos and managed to get some nice close shots that I've been wanting to get for a long time. The hide was warm and nice and quiet.
I hope to come back and hopefully see the male and female together and get a few more action shots, maybe at some point even try the diving shots. Thanks Mark.
