The Bank That Likes to Say Yes
This last week has seen the KFB (Kingfisher Bank) put to use by two more species that were not on our original radar.
As the flood levels started to drop the muddy area around the bank had obviously become a good holding spot for fish and a number of Little Egrets were gathered around it.
Ay Up - What's he caught
As I watched one caught a sizable Perch and was forced to make a swift getaway in order to prevent the others snaffling his catch.
They're not having my fish supper
Then yesterday during a glorious early spring afternoon, I spotted a black and white bird snuggled down on the gravel roof of the bank.
It seems we also have an OCB - Oystercatcher Bank.
I suspect the Oystercatcher was only resting up - but - on the other hand it does look a bit like it might fancy the spot as a potential brood site.
We certainly seem to be getting full value for all the hard work and effort.
