Mark said: “The lake froze over during the cold weather.
“It meant the kingfishers were unable to catch fish so I cut a small hole in the lake to help them out.
“And, to my amazement, the kingfisher started to hover over the hole in the ice, dived in and caught a fish.”
Freezing temperatures in the region also saw kids playing in the snow in Harrogate.
It was a similar story further south, with parts of West Sussex and Kent hovering around – 1C for most of the day.
Forecasters say temperatures are likely to turn milder before another Arctic blast with more snow flurries arrives tomorrow.
