Badger Visits, plus a Kingfisher

The title covers just a couple of today’s featured wildlife. The badger was photographed last night. It’s a very regular visitor to the garden, but generally rather shy.

Today took me past Seven Sisters. It’s always a good place for birds, and today was on the upper end of the scale. There were numerous cormorants:

Several little egrets (this is the pick of the shots)…

Rabbits…

A rainbow 😉

And most special of all, a kingfisher. I saw it flash past along the water, catching me by surprise and attempted to track its flight as it disappeared into the distance. This is probably the pick of the shots (heavily cropped).

Last word to last night’s badger:

Camera note: most photos taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens. I used the EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM for the badger.
