 The gloomy conditions of the past week have not been conducive to bird photography so this afternoon after concluding my domesticities I wandered along to the North Wall with Big Bertha who was fed up with being  confined to barracks for so long!
On arrival at the Salt House I was pleasantly surprised to find  fellow photographer ...'Friends of the Fourth Groyne'  concentrating his efforts in attempting to obtain shots of a Kingfisher in a very difficult and dark location .
 Alongside much banter I attempted  to get a few record shots and now and again the bird did actually come out from its hiding place and briefly chose a perch in the late afternoon sunshine. Nothing to write home about but at least something for the blog!

Competition from local fisherman.

In the sun.

Back on his usual post.

On the alert.
