Male Kingfisher

I run plenty of nature photography courses in Yorkshire, but this was the first time I had ever used anyone else's site on a paid for basis.

The site is set up by Mark Hughes http://markhughesimages.net/ and is beautifully done. A pair of kingfishers have been regularly visiting and perching to order - just metres away from the hide. I was really happy to bag some new shots of this stunning species - undoubtedly one of my favourite birds. The perch is particularly nice and just perfect for this little beauty. I hope I can get myself back over the summer. Great fun, and a great bird to see so close up..
