TWICE I saw…

TWICE I saw the Kingfisher today 🙂 The first he was on one of the wooden stages on Lollycocks pond, the second was going downstream near the Leisure Centre.

Ironically its also a year this week since we lost all but 1 Dabchick because of detergent getting into the river and washing all the protective oils from the Dabchicks (and everything else’s – Ducks Moorhens, […]
