Kingfisher photographed catching 6 types of fish

telegraph_kingfisherNothing to do with diving, although I suppose fish are involved, but I’m a big kingfisher fan as I think they are very pretty birds. Apparently they have to consume their own body weight in food each day. And let’s just say that after Christmas, it’s a very good thing that I don’t!

Anyway Paul Richards,  an amateur photographer, photographed a kingfisher catching six different types of fish in a tw0 hour period.

I have to say that even though the photos are excellent, I would be struggling to identify the fish – maybe that’s why I prefer wreck diving. Anyway they are well worth a look and are on The Daily Telegraph’s website.
