Kingfisher on Reedmace

This sculpture is based on a kingfisher that regularly visits the ponds on my nature reserve.  Providing I don't get too close, it tolerates my prescence quite well and, as a consequence, I have been able to sketch it on several occasions.

Bulrushes grow at the margins of the ponds and in the winter the kingfisher is often to be found perched on a bent over stem, scanning the water below.  I don't really know what attracts it to the ponds as none of them contain fish.  Some young great crested and common newts overwinter in the ponds and I guess that the kingfisher might feed on these - although I have never seen it catch one.
