Shooting


This video tells the story of a pair of Kingfishers, filmed from the late Winter and through to the early Spring. It demonstrates the tough winter conditions these small birds endure with heavy rainfall flooding and discolouring the water in the brook, making it difficult for the birds to find fish.
By Spring, the water has cleared and conditions are now perfect for the Kingfishers to prepare to breed and raise a brood; and they can be observed diving and flitting up and down the brook.
