Another go for the Kingfisher at The Country Park

As it was an excellent forecast again for today, I was up and down at Cleethorpes Country Park by 8.30 for another session trying for the kingfisher.  I was determined this time though to remain focused on the perch where I wanted to photograph it rather than chase the bird.  Unfortunately it had other ideas and not once did it settle on the perch.  I did get several good sightings of it though as it flew down the channel.  As always, though, there was always plenty to see.  Other birds included coot, moorhen, mallard, tufted duck, a large and noisy flock of greylag geese, oystercatchers, pochard, magpie, wood pigeon and goosander.  Unfortunately the black throated diver that has been present for around three weeks appears to have moved on.  The other good sighting was that of one of the foxes that have taken up residence on the island.

All photographs taken with canon 7D and 500mm lens with 1.4 converter.
