Not a common sight for sure, in fact I went back to where I saw this one and didn't see it again. The first time I saw the kingfisher there were photographers that had been waiting 4 hours or more, so pleased I only waited 10 mins :-)

Well captured! We have them near a stream nearby but l've never sought them out as it's very shady. Out in the sun, an occasional hi-speed flash of blue is the best we see!
