I nipped down to the local nature reserve today and it really felt like Spring had sprung. After the recent spell of miserable, cold weather, today was balmy and glorious with the smells of growing plants on the gentle breeze.

The wildlife was enjoying it too, with the resident kingfisher doing what he does best – fishing. One thing he doesn't usually do at all is come anywhere near me so I can get a really good photograph. Today though, he flew to a nearby branch and sat posed in the sun for 15 second or so. I can tell it was definitely a he as the bill is all black. This is my best shot yet of a kingfisher, by some margin.
