The Ramsgate Kingfishers are set to feature on BBC Winterwatch this year.

These birds are very territorial and some of the footage shown will be of 2 Kingfishers fighting in the Harbour filmed by local wildlife filmmaker Keith Ross (@ramsgatebirds).

Richard Taylor-JonesBBC Springwatch cameraman Richard Taylor-Jones joined Keith and spent days filming the birds to see how they cope with Winter in the harbour.

The film will also feature a bird that took up residence in a very surprising location away from the harbour.

Winterwatch begins on BBC2 Monday the 29th of January and runs for 4 nights.

More footage of the Kingfishers filmed by Keith will be shown on his youtube channel after the film airs.

UPDATE: The Ramsgate Kingfishers were kept until the very end of Winterwatch 2018.
