The weather has been amazing these past fews weeks, the trees look wonderful and the colour in the garden is beautiful.  I was sitting eating lunch by the pond with the dogs at my feet a couple of days ago and a kingfisher flew over the pond, took a goldfish and sat on the path a few feet away.  What a fantastic sight, his back is a flash of blue.  He has been spotted several times now and is competing with the heron for the fish! Good job the pond is full of them.
