Things had changed a little since the time when Tabib was here. The cast-iron water outlet where the Kingfishers sat waiting for the fish had been changed to a new UPVC pipe but they still prefer this location for hunting. This Blue-Eared Kingfisher was barely old enough to fly but she’s already diving in for fish- That’s survival in the animal kingdom. She’s really tiny!
Running out of runway! I don’t think the Navy pilots would dare land on their aircraft carrier like this.
