Two kingfishers mate at a pool near Droitwich, Worcestershire. Wildlife photographer Mark Hancox said: ''The pool is very popular with kingfishers at this time of year and I get some great pictures of them diving. I took dozens of shots of diving kingfishers but was intrigued by these two birds who were obviously in the middle of a courtship.'

Hornbills are a family of bird found in tropical and subtropical Africa, Asia and Melanesia. They are characterized by a long, down-curved bill which is frequently brightly colored and sometimes has a casque on the upper mandible. Hornbills are the only birds in which the first two neck vertebrae (the axis and atlas) are fused together; this probably provides a more stable platform for carrying the bill. The family is omnivorous, feeding on fruit and small animals.
