Red Deer Rut - North Yorkshire
Click play to watch this little clip of a male kingfisher on a favourite perch...
The photo below shows me leaving a camera (Canon 5D MkIII) trained on the kingfishers favourite perch... Using a PIR sensor (similar to that of security lights) the camera would be triggered should anything move in its field of vision, in this case ...
I think kingfishers make for a better photo than me (notice the short hair cut, or what I like to call my COVID cut!)
At the same time I wanted to test whether the kingfishers would use a perch I put in the river. So about 100m upstream I plonked a stick in the river, held upright by rocks, and left another trail camera on lookout.
