Spent a bit of time yesterday watching a pair of kingfishers, which when not darting about were kicking up quite a din. They've raised a brood. No pics worth posting, but lovely to see four kingfishers lined up in a row and the kids couldn't stop talking about them.
In other news I got a couple of hours on my own somewhere else in my fishy world and whilst I didn't pull up any trees whilst prospecting for future challenges I did catch a nice roach and a couple of average bream. The roach pleased me the most and got me thinking about some scaled down tactics when the temps drop a bit and the beech trees are beginning to shed their autumn tinted leaves and the pads are dying back..
