Waterway to Spend a Morning...

The summer migrants are beginning to arrive.  A few hours over at the patch this morning held three Chiffchaffs singing around the canal. Two even did the honourable thing and put in an appearance.  
Another surprise was the presence of the Kingfisher.  It's been a good month or two since my last sighting of her, but today she showed fairly regularly in the same place along the canal.  A mostly shady spot viewable from the bridge, and too far for the camera of course, but... that's Kingfishers for you.   It's been reported here a couple of times, so it must be frequenting the area, although it's the first time I've seen it here.  Perhaps I've just been looking in the wrong place?
 A great bird to have at the park, I'm hoping that it stays for a few more weeks as the four or five sightings that I've had are not nearly enough....



- Apologies for the messed up colours, blogger compression seems to have done something to it...
