    • Priscilla these were taken in 2018 and before I hade my 300mm lens so I am pretty sure I was using my 40-150mm lens with a 1.4 converter, ISO speed – 2500, F stop – F- 9 and exposure time of 1/5000 second.. Hope that helps. I am hopeless at the technical stuff !

  1. Great shots Helen, thought to myself , haven’t heard of that reserve around here. Then I found it in Newcastle! Happy new year to you lots of road trips and photography

  2. We only get the Belted Kingfisher where I live. They have a fabulous crest but are not nearly as pretty in color. Your photos are gorgeous! I believe no matter their color, they’re extremely sassy and territorial, so I get to see our local one often when he loudly announces himself flying up and down the river. LOL

    • We actually had a belted kingfisher ( or still have) in part of the UK at the moment.. The birders are going mad trying to spot it ! . It’s a much bigger bird than our common kingfisher which is anything but “common”
