This is a nice story. It recently came to our attention, that back in August 2015, Blantyre man Jim Brown captured a few photographs of a Kingfisher down the Calder. The less common beautiful bird was spotted “fishing” quite happily, in the Rotten Calder River.
Let’s hope this is a return of this lovely bird to a natural local habitat. Our green spaces around Blantyre really should be protected as much as we can. I hope Mr Kingfisher found a wife and had a family this year! Well done Jim.
