As it was on the far bank of the river this was the best shot of the kingfisher I could manage.It was beautiful watching it flashing along the river.Was also delighted to see the nuthatch,a GSW,great tits ,blue tits and a chaffinch on the feeders that we put up on Monday at Dilston.I have also had confirmation from the Bat conservation that it was a Daubentons bat we saw on Monday as it is the only one that skims the water.

Nice selection of birds you've attracted, good on you! I thought your bat would have been a Daubentons.
