Kingfishers Pair Bonding

Another go at getting my photos uploaded properly, thanks again for further advice from TeeJay.

These photos were taken at a Suffolk Wildlife Trust Reserve couple of years ago.

First the offer of a fish.

The acceptance.

That's nice

Can anybody beak read a Kingfisher, is she saying thank you or is she saying another one please.

Another day, same two kingfishers, but no sun. What a difference the sun makes to their colours

Hopfeully these show normally this time.


  • Yet another brilliant set Trevor, and yes, all but one showing in focus on the main thread :o)
    My beak reading is a little rusty, but as it's the female I imagine it's something along the lines of "Well, dear, that's a good start....."
  • Yay, you've cracked it, Trevor. It's a little tedious having to enter these numbers each time but worth it I think
    What a superb set of photos. The colours on these little jewels of birds is fantastic.

  • In reply to TeeJay:

    Thanks Tony,
    To make browsing easier I've just got to remember to put all the photos I want to upload into a dedicated file then delete the contents when finished and use the same file again each time I post.
  • Pictures to be proud of, wow, what a set, thanks so much for putting them on for us to see.

    Lot to learn

  • More great pictures Trevor, lovely to see Kingfishers
  • Great to catch them passing fish. It's not something I've ever seen.
