The search begins

After theory comes practice. And that is very uncertain here. Because even if you have found a great place, that doesn't mean that a kingfisher has settled there. We had to find that out during our first dozen visits - and something like that can be devastating. Although all the parameters are right, for weeks and months you see nothing but water, greenery and a few ducks or swans. All also very pretty animals to look at, but not the sought-after kingfishers. There was no trace of them far and wide...

Only the conversations with the locals and people, who know the fauna and flora of the area well, did not let us give up. Again and again we talked about the kingfisher that has been sighted here and there. So it must live here!
