Goldcrests and Kingfishers

This morning the sky was blue so I answered the call of the Goldcrests at Arundel. There were a few showing on the conifers and on the leaf litter. Neil was also there and in the afternoon we wandered round the Wildlife and Wetland Trust to see the Kingfishers and Snipe that Gary reported. We saw two Kingfishers, mostly in the distance. One gave us a lovely sighting when it flew in a circle in front of the Sand Martin hide, but it didn't land.
