After capturing great footage with the Bushnell trail cams of the Kingfisher hunting at the wildlife pond, we decided to mount a wired camera at this position. Mounting it as close as possible, on the opposite post, I positioned the camera to be at eye level with the kingfishers whern they alighted to hunt here.
This camera has captured some fantastic footage. illustrating the varied diet of the kingfishers. It has also shown that we have at least three, possibly four, individuals visiting at varying times of the day.
It is not only Kingfishers that visit this post. We have also been documenting the other species that we have recorded:
Great spotted woodpecker
