The kingfisher wasn't so keen to stop for a photo .....

We had a lovelywalk round Blackford Pond and the Hermitage of Braid this morning. The mute swans were happy to be photographed, the kingfisher less so....... It's the first time we've ever seen a kingfisher at Blackford Pond!

Lots of fungi about too, including this lovely display

Sorry about the kingfisher. They are shy birds. Love the swans and mushrooms. It is nice to take walks and enjoy nature. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Hi Juliet,

The photo of the swans is beautiful so tranquil with them gliding along.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend

Kingfishers, I should love to see them. There are kingfishers in our country and also in our neighbourhood but I never have seen one.......and I´m always searching.... The problem is my daughter sees them regularly and I cannot stand that....lol.

I looked up kingfisher - I couldn't think what they look like. They're lovely - too bad they are so camera shy!
