Been trying to get a photo of one of these pesky critters for ages and if you can't quite make it out - its a Kingfisher. I've decided that Kingfishers are like flying fish - er, in that if you see one and shout it out to someone else, it will have disappeared by the time they look. Just for once this guy actually stopped on a branch long enough for me to get a blurred long focus shot.
So spot the difference between this and the Staffs - straight, wide and you can actually see the tow path. Oh and there's a Kingfisher in the bushes to the left.
