Good news having 2 Kingfishers definitely improved our chances of seeing one.

Wednesday 5.30-6.30pm approx:
We had excellent views of a kingfisher from the bridge closest to the nature centre, even managed to get some photos.

It fished from the various rocks, posts & duck houses. Also seen flying low over the water up and down the channel by the cascade and over to the fallen willow branch on the main lake at least twice.
