A mate of mine came across a case of Victorian mounted Kingfishers a while ago. They had seen better days but he's restored it to its former glory and it looks really effective. There's one bird on a perch with a small section of river banking in the background plus undergrowth and another flying up to it. He added some subtle lighting behind it👏. This is a nice effort Rob, well done. These must be hard to get hold of. I've a mounted cuckoo here that was done by the late Roger Fisher. Now he could mount birds. I can appreciate a mans skills when I see the effort and imagination that has gone into his work.👍
