I blogged before about not seeing kingfishers along the Suir (on the Suir? in the Suir?). This was finally rectified this week. Rather than the “classic” sighting of a kingfisher either diving or perching, ready to dive, on this occasion the kingfisher was flying in barrelling , rather forceful style, across a reasonable length of the Suir before coming to perch. My first Tipperary kingfisher and one I won’t forget.
