Comments:
a single Kingfisher flying rapidly over the water, closely pursued by a Crow. The Kingfisher had something in its beak and was flying low and fast, using rapid changes in direction to try to evade the Crow. It flew from the point east of my wharf, past my position to the cliffs west of my wharf, pursued by the crow the entire time. The Crow was only a few feet behind the Kingfisher the entire time i observed the pursuit.
