Kingfisher Collection

Kingfishers are rare in the UK – I only saw my first Kingfisher back in the UK last summer.

Here in Tanzania they are much more common. Last week I saw a Woodland Kingfisher – thus completing the set of all those which can be seen in this part of Tanzania. All of these have been seen in our garden, apart from the Giant Kingfisher (seen in Kigoma) but resident here. However, not all of the photos were taken in the garden.

So here is the collection…..


Woodland Kingfisher


Grey-headed Kingfisher


Pygmy Kingfisher


Malachite Kingfisher


Pied Kingfisher


Giant Kingfisher

  1. These are lovely and fascinating shots. It took me many years to see my first British kingfisher, and it’s been the only one. But I have seen their Indian cousins, so that helps make up for it.
