info

Another species of bird belonging to Polish fauna, and "gained" during my stay in South Africa. The first encounter with a pied kingfisher was while at sunrise we were waiting for turacos. Two pairs of pied kingfishers in the morning preyed very efficiently. Unfortunately there was a wide space between us and even the 2X converter could not do. But the first documentary photographs were taken and to my list of birds belonging to fauna of Poland another species was added. On the last day of our stay in South Africa we were lucky to take some pictures from a much shorter distance. A pair of pied kingfishers preyed in vast floodplain areas. A concrete isthmus was their favorite place and the best shots were taken there.
