Friday Afternoon relaxation - Kingfisher watching.
3

Having been in the office at 5:30AM, I decided I'd had enough by midday so decided to scoot and head home, then diverted to the reservoirs for a walk and ended up (as usual) sitting watching the kingfishers.  They always seem to get very active again late afternoon and into early evening.

I also found a new spot to sit, at the end of another fallen tree that is covered in Ivy.  A bit precarious as I sitting over the water but there is enough undergrowth to obscure me and I can shoot through a gap.

Both taken with K3, DA*300mm and 1.7x AFA handheld.  Next trip I think I'll try for some video and maybe CIF to see if I can get a landing shot as they come in to perch.
