Kingfisher of Pennington Flash

Kingfisher of Pennington Flash

Photo Information
Out with the other half yesterday, taking advantage of what little decent weather we've had lately, up at Pennington Flash. Wandered into one of the hides at the very moment the Kingfisher decided to make an appearance, I usually wait for long periods for this kind of opportunity.
