Subject Info

A shining jewel of a bird, the Kingfisher is usually seen only as a blue flash as it flies at speed up and down rivers and over open water. It feeds mainly on various freshwater fish, which it catches by plunge-diving, usually from a suitable perch. It nests in burrows excavated in secluded or inaccessible riverbanks. It is common and widespread in Britain and throughout Europe. In Britain it is a Schedule I protected species.
