Yes ..... I know you are there behind me.

This image highlights the difference that the angle of light makes on the feathers of a Kingfisher, a fantastic colour effect.

The black upper and lower mandibles confirm that this bird is a male, if the lower mandible had a red / orange hue it would be a female.

Either way the Kingfisher, in my opinion, tops the British bird list as far as visual impact is concerned.     


  1. It looks like it's got the right hump. Great to see one and equally a good image too.

  2. Hi Doug, I've got a long way to go to catch up with Paul's fantastic work with Kingfishers !.
