Pied Kingfisher

Pied Kingfisher

The Ulwe Project

A Pied Kingfisher hovers midair, scanning the water below for prey, before diving down. Captured pre-sunrise in low light along Uran Road.

We had set out for our regular birding route, when along the way we spotted this fellow looking for breakfast – this was a reaction shot in low light. So am pretty happy I got whatever I did.

Besides this is the first decent shot of a Pied Kingfisher I have taken to date. I did spot it on earlier occasions, but it was too far away to capture.
