Nice shot, Ludo. Interesting glow on the perch. I hear the call all the time as it follows the river, but rarely see it.

Ludo, you came through in difficult low-light conditions. Sweet pose and excellent feather detail. It had to be a thrill.

Karl, glow on the perch is end of metal railing of a bridge that crosses the canal. Kingfishers love this spot, easy fishing for them.
