Hampstead Heath ~ London, England
Three Kingfishers are seen in in Hampstead Heath, London's ancient park. Kingfishers usually nest in sandy riverbanks - an ecology which doesn't naturally exist on Hampstead Heath. However, about 20 years ago an artificial bank was created out of a sand and cement mixture to encourage breeding and has proved a successful habitat for Kingfishers and other birds in the city.
