Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis)The Blue Flash

First a whistle.....then the blue flash comes to a halt on a perch about 30ft away.....it scans the water and suddenly plunges into the shallows for a minnow. Before long light rain begins to fall and it decides to fly off upstream chasing after another whistling blurr.
