The last two days I've been trying to photograph a Kingfisher with the use of a sweaty small canvas hide. When I visited Ecton sewage farm and I was sat at the weir I noted this Kingfisher kept perching on a particular branch at the top of the weir, so I set up the hide on Monday and sweated away all day, the Kingfisher didn't show and all I got was one Grey Wagtail image.
So given the fact the hide was only up for the day, I assumed the Kingfisher had clocked it a decided not to stop, so armed with some old branches I covered it up more which just served to make it even more sweaty inside. The Kingfisher popped through a few more times but didn't stop once....grrrr, no photo's then but I shall keep trying.
It has given me a chance of catching up with some Swallows that I took but never got round to processing from the 11th
These are un-cropped/full frames no work apart from some unsharp mask.
On a non birding note I haven't been paying to close attention the sport pages but when I saw Jose was trying to sign an over-weight, out of form, slightly balding (slightly?), foul mouth and bad temper footballer for £30 million I kept checking my bank account for the cheque, sadly it seems he was after Wayne Pooney, don't do it Jose, I'll sign up for just a fraction of that £30 million and probably play more games too........
