The first kingfisher

 

Sir, – Further to Michael Viney’s “Everyone remembers their first kingfisher” (Weekend, April 24th), my first sighting of a kingfisher was on Arklow’s South Quay in 1955.

It was low tide and the exposed ribs of a long-abandoned and sunken timber vessel provided an ideal perch for a kingfisher. – Yours, etc,
