Cheers Steve, she seems fairly relaxed and I am sure she knows that I am here.

The king fisher pics are soooo beautiful. I really appreciate this blog. I see a kestrel most mornings, just before 6.30, on Primrose Hill. Not where the nesting box is but near the lit path that cuts across, running along the large playing field. He always sits on the same branch, fluffed up against the cold. Svetlana

Svetlana.
I am glad you like the blog, I might have overdone the Kingfisher pics, but they are such beautiful birds. It was a bird that until three years ago was only a scarce visitor to the park. With the reed beds becoming more established, offering shelter for small fish which in turn has attracted the Kingfishers. The next stage is that they breed in the park. Today I got lucky a Kingfisher landed nearby with a fish.
