Kingfisher, River Don

What sights this morning along the River Don, from Neepsend Bridge to Lady’s Bridge, we were lucky to watch a female Kingfisher (unlike the male, the female has an orange underside to its bill), too far for a close up but stunning, bathing for many minutes in the sunshine, a Grey Wagtail and a beautiful female Goosander. All this on a half-mile stretch in the city centre, and from an all-round car trip of 2 miles from our house! Conditions: Frost, sun and building cloud. Temperature: Max 5- Min 0C.
