A kingfisher was spotted on the river Frome December 2019 by Steve Jones, who took some wonderful photographs of the beautiful bird. It is great to see that Kingfishers are present in the local area as they are listed as ‘Amber’ under the Birds of Conservation Concern and are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981
Kingfishers are often hard to spot due to their quick flying speeds. If you’re lucky, you may be able to spot one for yourself along the River Frome as they swoop down to feed on small fish from the River.
You can find out more about Kingfishers on the Wildlife Trusts website.
