In the NCE issue of 21 March the front page of the feature article on sustainability included a photograph of a kingfisher.
Since the article was solely about the UK it seemed an odd selection of photograph since the bird shown was a Malachite Kingfisher (Alcedo Gristata) - only resident in the Eastern part of South Africa.
A more appropriate picture would have been the Common Kingfisher (Alcedo Atthis) which is resident in Europe and parts of Asia.
Are there no 'birders' on the editorial staff or among the many civil engineers who make use of their outdoor occupation for a bit of 'twitching'?
