The Kingfisher is notoriously difficult to photograph, which makes Kingfisher, Tales from the Halycon River all the more remarkable. From a hide attached to his home by a West Country river, and from a number of vantage points along the same river, Charlie Hamilton James has watched and photographed kingfishers for literally thousands of hours. Written in diary form, it covers the kingfishers' habits season by season and describes them with real intimacy.
