The female kingfisher was photographed perched on a pipe at Horn Mill photo hide while waiting for the osprey. The osprey images are of the female bird "30" taken at the other photo hide at Ryhall trout farm. Photography at this site is more difficult, and I used my 500mm lens as the ospreys fish at the back of the lagoon. As can be seen in these images, getting a clean background is not easy as this is a working fish farm. However this is compensated for by the regular daily arrival of at least 3 birds with female osprey "30" coming every day at about 2pm, so no need for high ISO settings.
