Kingfishers are especially vocal in spring and autumn.

Country Diary: Shy bird that is often located by its shrill call

“Looking for great crested newts?” I jokingly enquired of a couple, gazing intently with binoculars over the muddy bed of a drained area of the lake near the Open Air Theatre. No, they were seeking a pair of kingfishers in a willow tree. Apparently three days of observation out of five recently, had proved successful. Yes, they were present, but we must wait. It’s a shy bird, and is often first located by its call. Some move to sheltered coasts in winter.
