I have spent many hours over the past few months down on Odney stream photographing the Kingfishers with some brilliant results.
It's an amazing feeling sitting and watching such a beautiful bird feed no more than a few feet away.
If you want to see one of these superb birds, stroll down to the 'big boulder' next to the fork in the stream, wait 10 mins and i'm sure one will fly past, or if you're hidden away one may just land and fish off the dead tree in the water, but be warned, they are very fast....
Just another reason why i love living in Cookham.. Grin

You should come to Strande Park and see our beautiful red kites. There acrobatics are worth seeing they are so lovely.
I have baby blue tits, great tits, a lovely jay that visits every day. I have a greenfinch which has just started to visit and of course pigeons. Shocked

I have stood on the footpath to the side Strande Park a number of times, but with all the trees it's hard to get a decent shot of the Kites, we have a lovely spotted woodpecker who visits our garden ( very early am )... My favourite bird has to be Kingfisher though...

Come down into Strande \Park - go into the visitor car park, walk through the line of trees and there is open green space, if you get there about 4.30 - 5.00 you will have an uninterrupted view as they circle and dive.

This is a photo of a kingfisher on Wildlife in the Cookhams, which I believe was taken round the Lower Mount Farm area.
