Fifty Years On

On the 24th May 1973 I sat for six hours in my hide, in the Forest of Bowland, photographing my first pair iof Kingfishers at the nest.It was a magnificent moment and I enjoyed every moment in the company of Britain’s most colourful bird.
On the 24th May 2023 I was in my hide, less than a mile from the earlier site, and once again I was enthralled by the comings and goings of Kingfishers. In those fifty years I have repeated the experience at least thirty times for you can never get enough of those halcyon birds of summer.
