|The Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) also known as Eurasian Kingfisher or River Kingfisher, is a small kingfisher with seven subspecies recognized within its wide distribution across Eurasia and North Africa. It is resident in much of its range, but migrates from areas where rivers freeze in winter.|
Common Kingfishers are important members of ecosystems and good indicators of freshwater community health. The highest densities of breeding birds are found in habitats with clear water, which permits optimal prey visibility, and trees or shrubs on the banks. These habitats have also the highest quality of water, so the presence of this bird confirms the standard of the water

The Common Kingfisher has always been a favorite of mine because of it's fine features and gorgeous plumage. You are very fortunate to have such a beautiful bird living in your area. Nicely presented image!!
Nice perch and background, crisper image would make it outstanding,with good composition.
