Something I want to do.

As I was talking only yesterday about bucket lists, I happened to ask for help about something I really want to do in the UK. I am really keen to see a kingfisher, the most beautiful British bird in my opinion, in the wild.

I´ve seen one once. Well, I was actually walking alongside a stream somewhere in north Wales  years ago with my dog and I realised about five seconds after I´d noticed that microsecond of flashing electric blue, that I’d just seen my first one, but i didnt actually “see it” if you know what I mean.

So I asked a few friends for advice which came freely, and I thanked all and sundry.

But as often happens on the World Wide Winifred, it just so happens that not only does somebody know something about this subject, but in fact they know somebody who goes and takes photos like this:

Nightingale

AND WHO WILL TAKE ME WITH HIM TO TAKE SOME MYSELF (although nowhere near as brilliant as this one.

Kevin Pigney you are a master Sir, and I am looking forward to spending some time with you to see the little things in their natural environment.

I may have to write my bucket list after all so I can start ticking things off.

    How delightful that Mr. Pigney could catch this lovely bird on a branch with a cobweb for added
    detail… wonderful.

    And it’s great to see you excited about new adventures. Good on you!
