SN_KINGFISHER_BRAWL_03.jpg
A male and female kingfisher make a splash as they fight after a courting ritual went wrong.  According to a photographer who captured pictures of the battle, the female bird had entered into the male's nest uninvited and the pair 'did not click'.<br />
<br />
This prompted the male bird to pull her away, which resulted in a fight breaking out.  Bram Oostdijk, 67, took these pictures at a cemetery in Schiedam, the Netherlands. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS. <br />
