this Kingfisher was found in a garden in Oxted, Surrey. it was seen there for a couple of days before it was picked up. When it came to us it was thin and dehydrated. there were no injuries so no real reason for it to e on the ground. it was obviously a youngster so maybe mum had disappeared.  Kingfishers do not make great patients as they dont cope with confinement, this chap, how ever did not seem to mind. he had to be force fed for a number of days before it started eating for itself. for the rest of the story see above.
