Kingfisher at Brentford Lock

I have seen a kingfisher three times in my life. The third time was this morning on the Thames at Brentford Lock. I hit the water at 7am and got up to Brentford at about 8am. You rarely see these birds, as they are so shy. The bird just whizzed by like a bullet, brilliant blue on top and rusty red underneath. Unmistakeable. Lovely.

    I’m away for most of August, but we should scull together in September.

    Can also back that as I just saw one at 14.30 on the canal near Brentford Lock. First one I have seen in UK?
