It's always exciting to capture a kingfisher close-up. I've spent many hours in Bernard's Hide at Lackford Lakes Nature Reserve in Suffolk waiting…

On my first trip to Bedford Purlieus (woods in the north of Cambridgeshire) I had planned to photograph the dark green fritillaries. However it was a very hot…
