[en] In the spring of 1986, a nesting male Kingfisher was accidentally drown during ringing operation. He was the father of five 11 days old nestlings which later starved to death. His female was meanwhile brooding a second clutch. This cluth has been raised by a foster-father (an unknown adult male) whereas the female started a third clutch.
