    This is another shot of the same Kingfisher. (There were two KFs, but one flew away before we could get a pic!) I live in Essex and have always wanted to see a 'Yorkshire' Kingfisher :) Have now seen this gorgeous species in Yorkshire, Lancashire, Essex, Hertfordshire and Renfrewshire....

    I believe this is a juvenile Redstart. Confirmation would be appreciated! Many thanks to the staff at Fairburn who told us about the Redstart sightings on 11th July, 2011. (We saw the stunning male bird, but sadly were not quick enough to get a pic of him).
