Black-backed Kingfisher

After returning from the UK, one of my first duties was to do the school run on the morning of Thursday 14th September.  Fortunately my goddaughter's school is close to Suan Rot Fai, so it was a minor detour for me to stop by and catch up with this migrant Black-backed Kingfisher.  This absolutely stunning bird was offering point-blank views to anyone who cared to attend. 

The pictures were taken with my  Nikon V1 matched with the Nikkor 300mm f4 VR PF lens, and speak for themselves...

In which part of the park did you see this critter? I was there Friday for the first time since winter, and disapointed to see a lot of scrub gone to make way for the walking track.

Forgot to add: those are stunning shots. What a bird!

The BB Kingfisher has now gobe, but was seen at the north end of the Secret Garden.
