A series of images of a diving Malachite Kingfisher taken yesterday at LP, weather was overcast and cloudy, and a little chilly. The three Grey Heron nests were empty, the constant harassment by the fish eagles had moved the herons to a perch high on a tree about fifty metres away. Hopefully the herons will return to the nests.

Thanks all for your kind comments.

Nice shot Jan, it must be "lets shoot a kingfisher season"

Bushbuddies - water level at LP is back to normal levels, still nice sandbanks on the right of the hide for wading birds. Thick Knees nesting on the sandbank. Lots of crocs around.
