Two Kings

I had a walk along the Horton Burn and around the old fire station fields today. No sign of the Little Egret but a Grey Wagtail and a Kingfisher were next to each other on the stretch of the burn at Northburn Park. A Moorhen was sitting in a tree feeding on berries further along the burn and a roost of 10+ Blackbirds were gathered.
From the last footbridge before the fire station road, one Kingfisher flew west along the burn whilst another flew east and through the tunnel. This is the first time in a while I have seen two Kingfishers on the burn at the same time. No snipe at all on the fields but a pair of Mistle Thrushes chattered overhead.
