CommentI am sure that anyone who has visited the wonderful Kingfisher Park will have photographed this very bird on this very perch. This branch has been artfully hung next to a bird feeder for this exact photographic opportunity. This is however a wild bird and I am very grateful to have been so close to a stunning little creature.
