Description:

Though it didn't catch anything. The kingfishers at Rye Meads were very active.
My word though, they're quick, and hard to photograph.

Blue Flash

Lucky blighter Simon. I have never been privileged enough to see more than the proverbial blue flash.

Rye Meads

Hi Ray,

Rye Meads is in south Herts, at Hoddesdon, and at this time of year you can be pretty certain to see kingfishers. It's worth making the trip if you want to see these super birds.
