I think I must be having a fantastic run of luck with the times I go down to the river. The one missing shot I want is one of the KF perched on my side of the river, rather than 40-50 yds away across it, or alternatively, more than one of them in shot at a time :o) (Just being greedy now lol)

I hadn't until we were on holiday in Scotland earlier this year. People had said there were some in the river local to me, but I'd never seen one, and I'd been mooching about it on and off for 12 ish years, then, all of a sudden there they were!
I'm sure you've interwebbed locations close to you, but a quick search turned up www.wildlifetrusts.org/where_to_see_otters which may be useful. And now you can walk properly again, the rehab exercise along the riverbank will be useful, with or without otters :o)
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I think capturing a kingy in flight is probably harder than on a branch. They're small, definitely not slow and a challenge, unless you sit prepared for hours....
So I still say well done.
