Such a sense of survival in these precious lines :)

I've never seen a kingfisher in the wild, but I have heard they are fast. I have a stuffed one on a high shelf - my grandfather found it dead it his garden, after it had been taking his prized goldiish for years. He had it stuffed and I asked to have it once he died.
