Certainly one of the most beautiful and sought after of the british birds the Kingfisher is a joy to watch at such close quarters. The resident pair use our pond hide throughout the year to feed at and usually nest a few hundred yards further up stream. We have built some artificial nesting chambers along the river bank and should they choose our burrows we will offer a more intimate view of them inside the nest chamber*.

We developed some techniques using artificial light last year to offer a more unique image of the Kingfishers straight dive. Information on these workshops will be released through the newsletter and added to the Flash Photography Workshop page. .

To see if we are currently working with this species see the active hides page.
