Kim is passionate about the Leven River and is an invaluable guide if you are going on a bird trip. She is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure you have every opportunity to photograph birds such as the Azure Kingfisher and a range of raptors. Excellent value, fully recommended.

My 9yo son and I were privileged enough to take part in the bird photography cruise. We saw a heap of species but watching a pair of azure kingfishers picking off fish was the highlight. Birds aside, just spending time on the river is good for the soul. Kim is a great host too. We’ll definitely be back.

Hi Monty Wow thanks for the extra star ⭐️ It was so nice having you and your son on board. Your young boy was very impressive with his vast knowledge and eagerness to learn more, about the river and birds. It was such a special moment with the little azure being so active and just doing his business around us. So pleased you had a relaxing time on the river. It certainly is great way to relax and enjoy the natural environment. Thanks you your lovely complements. Looking forward to your return Cheers Kim😀👩‍✈️

My partner and I spent a wonderful afternoon with Kim on her 3hr bird photography cruise. Kim's knowledge of the river and it's history is fascinating. I photogaphed many birds, a sea eagle, plenty of swallows, seagulls, herons and cormorants. Unfortunately the azure kingfishers were not active around the river during our cruise. Kim idled the boat, giving us the best opportunity to see them. There may have been one quick sighting, but no more. As all bird photographers are aware getting a perfect shot requires patience, skill, the right opportunity, plus luck. Kim's Leven River cruise certainly provides the perfect opportunity to take amazing shots of these beautiful birds. I will definitely be back on Kim's bird photography cruise during the kingfisher's breeding season. Hopefully they will be more active over the water and I will get an award winning shot. Jackie.

Hi Jackie. Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It was a great pleasure to have you both on board. I’m pretty sure there was a quick sighting of that little azure, the descriptive characteristics certainly supported the sighting. Thank you for your kind complements, its such a lovely cruise to drift and idle along in hope to assist in getting that very special photo moment. I’m so pleased you were happy with the photos of the other birds of the sanctuary, they too offer a impressive photo. I’ll be looking forward to having you back on board. The active season is nearing now. Spring time is a great times for viewing and hopefully capturing that award shot. Thank you again Cheers Kim😀👩‍✈️
