My favourite bird found in the UK. The brightness of the Blue can only really be appreciated in person with your own eyes. For some reason photographs and video never quite do it justice. Despite living near plenty of water I've only ever seen them about five or six times in my life as well; you must have a reliable water to get so much footage.

I cannot agree with you more. I filmed them,, photographed them but real life experience can't be matched. Oddly enough I filmed them at the pond where people threw away old tires, fridges and other garbage. I have to be very careful not to have that stuff in the shot when I'm filming/photographing. Maybe those things don't affect the water quality that much...

Very nice and well done, some of the shots in there are fantastic, a few very clear ones around the 6 minute mark and the shot of the kingfisher next to a dragonfly on a second branch very good clearity. The last scene as well if it was zoomed a bit closer.

I'd suggest makeing a 2-3 minute highlight real of it since most people don't have a pacience for one that long, which you could then provide a link to a more full length video such as this or longer.

Well done and a neat hobby, also dubbing over it with your best English accent could work as well.

Thank you for the suggestions. And I'm happy you like some of the footage. I did a shorter 1min video with couple of better clips already: https://www.bitchute.com/video/klnZHhyXbNdh/

Yeah, my accent - not a native English speaker. :)

Thanks again!

More just cause or seens like it could be a documentary on the kingfisher, and all documentaries should have people with English accents explaining them.
The short ones nice too, bummer the dragonfly shot didn't make it in. But good choice on the ending shot.

Kingfishers are beautiful. Would love to see one.

They're amazing. Best chance to spot them is near the river.

Your camera sounds like the terminator.

The internal mic is so badly placed it always picks-up the sound of them zooming motor.

Cool video, thanks for sharing. Is it known why they 'bob' their heads when they're just sitting?

Appreciate it - thanks for taking a look. They bob their heads because they can't move their eyes. They're using up/down movements to sort-of track the movement and pin-point the exact location of their prey (in this case small fish).

Wow. Looks neat. Yeah - even those that I filmed make so much noise - especially when there's like 7-8 of 'em fishing at the same time.
