Baby Kingfisher: The happy ending!

We got a call this morning from the vet. The baby kingfisher was in perfect health and had "found his wings!" Could we come in to collect him and let him free from our garden so that he would be back where he started? 

We had a very exciting drive home from the vet and held tight to the closed box. When we got out of the car the kids pulled back the tea towel and he flew from the box straight to the trees by the lake and sat on a telephone wire getting his bearings.

The kids were so happy to have seen a happy ending to this adventure. As Rhiannon said 
"It makes you feel good inside"
