I have to acknowledge a considerable debt of gratitude to Ryan Eustace, a zoology student in Aberdeen, Scotland, who self-evidently is a wizard with Photoshop. I posted my shot of the Black-backed Kingfisher on Birdforum asking for a steer and little did I know Ryan would in fact do the job for me. Many thanks Ryan, what more can I say?! I am so pleased with this! I think this one might be getting printed and framed.
