Had a great morning out along the Derwent Walk today with my 18 month old nephew Jake and my 76 year old mother, both of whom got to see there first red kite and kingfisher. Both (the birds) looking resplendent in the midday sun. My mother also had to do her first ever outside pee after managing to avoid it for all her 76 years. So a great day of firsts for her!
Spent half an hour at Far Pastures hide and had unbelievable views of a kingfisher. These are the best 2 shots I got on using my Canon SX50. I must say that I've been blown away with this little camera.
