Halcyon lunch

Kingfisher by Scott Guiver

 

I try and get out for a walk every lunchtime, stretch my legs and let my eyes focus on something further away than my computer monitor. I always go to the same place – the Millennium Green in Halesworth, Suffolk.

If you go to the same place all the time then you get to know the flora and fauna that lives there day by day and season by season. So after catching several glimpses of a Kingfisher lately, I’ve become aware of it’s favourite fishing perch.

Today was a hot day, there were dog walkers and families on the green…and there was me , camera in hand, crawling across the grass. As my fellow park goers looked on,  I ignored self-dignity and the fact that I might look a bit dodgy,  I didn’t care, stealth was the only way to get close enough to photograph this beautiful creature.

A perfect winters day.

I took a lunchtime stroll through Belfairs Great Wood , the air was cold and crisp, yet the suns rays were gently warming. A Great Spotted Woodpecker drummed , while winter thrushes scavenged amongst frozen leaf litter. Although it was the perfect winters day , I sensed that spring might not be far away.
