A trip southwards with our boat from the Trent onto the Soar resulted in a Kingfisher being spotted near Kegworth Deep Lock. Our boat was tied up ready to go through the lock at the time, and this gave me a chance to attempt to photograph this bird. Unfortunately my camera started playing up, and I missed the shots when it flew out of the tree on the opposite bank, caught a fish, and then landed on the towpath in front of me with it in its beak. I have now found out what the camera problem is, and can get round the problem most of the time. However, it will be going in for a service once a trip to the USA is over.
