Although these Kingfishers were filmed at the MWT Pwll Penarth Nature Reserve near Newtown, they have a very close association with the nearby River Severn and rely heavily on it, as a source of food.
Pwll Penarth is too shallow to support a population of fish which are large enough to interest the Kingfishers and hence the adjacent river (and canal) are used as their main feeding grounds. They have been recorded as regularly bringing back fish every 40 mins over the course of a day.
