One of our most strikingly beautiful birds is the Kingfisher and we're delighted to have a nest on camera. The Kingfisher nest is quite different to those of our other webcam stars, as they excavate a burrow by tunneling into sandy soil on low stream banks.
Around six to seven eggs are normally laid in late March and early April, hatching roughly three weeks later. Chicks can eat well over ten fish per day while in the nest and will normally take their first flight around 25 days after hatching.
