Noisy Kingfisher Nest

29 Jan

Last year we were puzzled by some really strange noises coming from a dead willow tree stump. Its hard to explain the noise , a cross between a Dalek and the Mash men having an argument. Some research established this was actually a Kingfisher nest. They love these dead hollows.

Oh and if you prod around too much your likely to get a squirt of Kingfisher poo.

Recently we have seen more Kingfishers and discovered they were back nesting in the same tree. Here is some video footage to share the noise, it really sounds like this.
