Kingfisher, Barway, 21st August 2017 © Wendy Flack
'After hearing a thump on the bedroom window I looked out and saw a pile of turquoise feathers on the ground.  Before the dogs or cats could investigate I picked this little unconscious bird up, kept him warm and safe for ten minutes until he came around.  He eventually sat up in my hand, opening and closing his beak and shaking his head a little.  He just sat quietly for perhaps ten minutes perched on my hand as I wandered around the house.  He decided it was time to return and quietly flew off into the trees surrounding the lake beside our house.  I watched him sit in the trees for a minute or so  bright turquoise in the branches and then off he went - possibly with a headache.'
