Kingfisher, Little Grebe and Ratty

Yesterday I visited Arundel WWT. I had just set up in the Sand Martin hide when the Kingfisher landed on the perch in front of the hide. It had a lovely side profile, but by the time I had pressed the button it had turned away from me. It had its usual two second stop then flew off. Next time...

There was occasional action, the best being a Little Grebe which landed and swam past.
