It is a nifty little puzzle.

Wonderful puzzle, sameez1! Flight square, zugzwang and underprotion in a very attractive setting!

Except for one thing ..... the position is illegal! Unless you want black to start which is unwelcome here.

Easiest repair:

That adds another underprotion, not in the solution but in the identity of a unit in the diagram!

When solving I was suspicious of an under promotion in the solution so I found this one first...Kxf7....gxh8 N#

Oh lol, something's wrong with my head. Didn't see that the rook could be captured.
