Heavens above ...
It is a slow end to what has been a disappointing summer on the stream, regarding the second year running of an unsuccessful year of breeding. The visits to the hide from the Kingfisher are consistent, but without the regular presence of a female for the last few months, it has been lacking in events.
There are two males on the steam, each with their own individual territories, although both birds do visit the hide which can lead to many disputes if either bird is caught trespassing.
I have been visiting less during September, just once a week to see if a female has been attracted into the area, but as of the end of the month, no luck.
