TO THE RESCUE!

by Marilyn Grimble May. 13, 2016 2324 views

A change from the holiday images.
Tribe came in with a kingfisher yesterday.
We managed to save it.
After getting over the attack we placed her gently across the road by the River Chalerone.
She could fly, but was still slightly stunned.
Let's hope she managed to make it …
Kingfishers are so very beautiful … the iridescence must have caught Trixie's attention.

Fabulous! Big eaters they are. Known to clean out a backyard fish pond in a single day.

What a great opportunity to get up close to this elusive bird. (I think you have been training your cat) My neighbours' cat killed a baby kingfisher last year. The cat was lucky to survive!

It looks quite happy in Des's hand so hopefully all will be well and good. Beautiful colours on them. Well done you two for bird rescue.
