Report. R. Lane. 23rd August 2011

 A short visit to Par today. Seemingly not much on the Pond, except a drop more water ! At the 'West-End' walking over to the West Par river from the car-park, I heard and saw a Common Sandpiper fly up stream (low tide). Although I could not relocate the Sandpiper, a Kingfisher was fishing from the sawn off tree branches, at 45degs to the horizontal, as a perch, until it saw me and flew upstream out of sight !
Well done Roger. I am glad the Kingfisher is back. As the crowds thin out it probably will be seen a lot more. I am hoping to photograph them this Autumn once a feeding pattern has been established.
