A Christmas treat
This beautiful photo of a kingfisher was taken on Boxing Day by Oulton Street resident, Ksynia Marko, from her bedroom window. The kingfisher was perched on a branch close to the road, overlooking the pond at the southern end of The Street. It is no doubt appreciating the improved view of the inhabitants of the pond, created by the clearing of overhanging and submerged trees, and landscaping of the immediate area, recently carried out by Christopher Harrold. We look forward to watching how the pond and surrounding area evolve, as it all settles down over the next few months.
