Discounted video footage
The Common Kingfisher (Alcedo Atthis) Catching Fish Slow Motion Video Footage shows the Common kingfisher (Alcedo atthis), also known as Eurasian kingfisher and river kingfisher, killing and swallowing a small fish.
First of all the common kingfisher is a small kingfisher with seven subspecies recognized within its wide distribution across Eurasia and North Africa.
Especially relevant the footage is shot in slow motion Full HD or 4K DCI.
In addition the flight of the kingfisher is fast, direct and usually low over water. As result the short rounded wings whirr rapidly and a bird flying away shows an electric-blue “flash” down its back.
In conclusion global population trends have not been quantified. Hence populations appear to be stable so the species does not approach the thresholds for the population decline criterion of the IUCN Red List.
Consequently the species is evaluated as “least concern”.
