Hi Ron

Just wanted to thank you for the kingfisher workshop on Saturday. It was a great day and although I haven’t had time to look through my images yet I know I’ve got some crackers!

As always I came away thinking I could do some things better and would definitely like to go to that hide again.
Thanks again and looking forward I’ll look towards doing another workshop with you in the coming months.
PS Hope your head survived the bumping!
