Kingfisher

There is a Kingfisher currently in our area. I have spoken to two people who have seen it, and it has been reported at Morton Turn.

The warden at Beckingham Marsh tells me it has occasionally turned up there too.

I have seen it twice. The first time was on Nov 10th 2017 when it flew across the path in front of me. The second time was on Feb 25th 2018, when it was sat on a branch overhanging the river by North Warren Road. It was there for some time before darting over the water to the opposite bank, where I could still see it for a long time. Eventually it flew down river towards Morton and out of sight.
