I survived the winter

Almost half of the population kingfishers apparently didn't survive last winter. Due to frozen waters a great number of the exotic looking birds starved to death. They depend on catching fish which was very difficult. So I was luckily surprised as I heared the characteristic sound of a kingfisher at the place they were breeding last year. With a little preparation it was possible to take a few shots of my first KF this year. The plan is to make a little project with I hope some pictures of the mating.
