    Thanks John, that's as close as i've ever been to a Kingfisher, i thought i'd never get the chance again but he appeared again this morning, he only stayed on the fence for a few seconds but i managed to get a couple of pics.

    A few from yesterday at Colgagh, i was packing up yesterday as it was a wee bit quiet, i turned around and there was 3 fine big Irish Hares in the field behind me. this wee part of the country just keeps throwing up surprises.

    I've actually been inspired by this thread and look for photo opportunities of our wee beastie pals. Got loads but nothing that compares with the quality of pictures I see on here.

    Said it before and will say it again, the best thread on here.

    Ps..cracking picture of the moon tonight all the same.

    Corals are spawning tonight due to the effects of the full moon. Once my lights go out I’m going to observe under the red light spectrum. It’s the best way to observe this kind of behaviour. Nature never ceases to amaze CFD2199A-BC1C-4F90-B05B-FD88CEC84E2D.jpeg CFD2199A-BC1C-4F90-B05B-FD88CEC84E2D.jpeg

    Clarity is nice just a shame it's so dark must be a filter built into the phone, if you wanted to you could brighten it up in photoshop or GIMP, but still a good pic :50:

    Taylor mate, that's exactly where I've seen them, also heading towards Dalmarnock, where I stay. Great sighting when you do see one. Makes your day

    I’d have been up all night watching that!!

    for some reason I can’t upload photos just now, but my cichlids have been breeding regularly and the mixed community tank is buzzing just now with fully mature adults down to fresh free swimmers just released from their mothers mouth.

    A few from midweek, there's been a thick heavy fog on the loch these last few days which isn't the best for wildlife photography, it slowly burns off as the sun rises but by that time my belly is rumbling for breakfast, so i didn't manage to get too much, but the one saviour is i got to see the Kingfisher again, he didn't stay for long but i managed to get a couple of pics before he flew off.
