DECEMBER 2007: Despite the wet weather this summer, 4,000 sightings were recorded by

most brilliant bird, the kingfisher.
British Waterways’ ecologists were particularly keen to track sightings of the kingfisher as it is generally accepted as a key indicator of good water quality and a healthy ecosystem.
