Kingfishers on the river

May 25, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

At this time of year kingfishers are busy feeding their young- each young bird requiring 12-18 fish a day , and up to ten in a brood could mean 180 fish per day, typically a nest visit every ten minutes. Worldwide there are 87 species of kingfisher. In the UK up to 90% of the kingfisher population can perish in a harsh winter.  More kingfisher photos at Kingfisher gallery Common kingfisherCommon kingfisherCommon kingfisher Common kingfisherCommon kingfisherCommon kingfisher
