birding, birds at Forest Farm, birdwatching, British birds, Forest Farm Nature Reserve, Kingfisher
I mentioned in Saturday’s blog that I saw one particularly beautiful bird during my visit to Forest Farm Nature Reserve on Thursday, and this is it, a Kingfisher.
And I was lucky – I saw it twice, visiting the ponds in front of first one bird hide and then the other.
It didn’t linger long at either, announcing its departure with the trade-mark peep, peep, peeping as it flew off with a flash of vibrant turquoise.
Forest Farm is a super place to film Kingfishers, seeing one is almost guaranteed.

Yes indeed, and I’ve often seen them there, though I’m not one of those with cameras and long lenses who spend hours in the hides waiting for the right shot. 🙂
