    Not a bad one Alan, which perch was this one? Went there yesterday, but only saw the Kingfisher flash past a couple of times.

    Default Female

    By the way I'm told this is a female, my earlier pic had both m & f. I was told females have rust under their beak, perhaps Rolf would know?

    The rust on the lower bill is quite distinctive, not sure there's any showing on your picture above Alan.
