    On Sunday I spent over eight hours sat in a cold hide hoping for some Kingfisher shots and I finally got some:cool::cool:.

    The female stayed distant...

    I did know they were in that area for a while but I only found the right place two weeks ago, but at that time I had to take my wife shopping so couldn't wait then.
    Bloody shopping spoils all my fun :mad:;).

    Real lovely shots. You must have a lot of dedication, I just dont work well in the cold. I'm really feeling it at the moment just getting back from a warm climate and all. I'v felt cold every day all day sinse I got back.

    excellent shots to be proud of :)

    just goes to show though, that even 400mm on a crop camera is often not enough to get close to these little beasties. I lust after a 600mm

    I know what you mean, a friend of mine had a Sigma 300-800mm which he let me try once:cool:.
    The only problem was at 800mm I couldn't find anything in the viewfinder I was trying to shoot:eek:;)
