A mischievous kingfisher points passersby in the wrong direction as they try to reach a river.

With its wing outstretched, the colourful bird appears to be misdirecting walkers as it preens itself on the top of a 'River Stour' sign.

Another rebel kingfisher blatantly ignores the rules as it eats a bullhead fish whilst standing atop a 'No Fishing' sign. Photographer Dean Mason pictured the cheeky kingfishers by the River Stour near Wimborne Minster, Dorset.
