Kingfisher Photography Workshop

Sunday 6th August 2017

With exclusive use of a photography hide, this is a full day workshop concentrating on photographing the ever popular Kingfisher. At this time of year there is a very good chance of increased activity due to the possible presence of young birds in the nest or recent fledglings.

Limited to a maximum of 3 people, the intention is to get some great portraits of the birds and there may also be the possibility of trying for some diving shots.

The hide is located near Kircudbright in South West Scotland, just over 2 hours drive from the North East and the day will start by meeting near the hide at 7.30am ending when the light goes. (Car sharing may be possible from the North East).

Equipment needed is lenses of about 200mm, so something like a 70-200 is ideal (300 to 400mm is good for the perched portrait shots, the birds are quite close). A bean bag is also needed (it may be possible to borrow one) as is a shutter release cable (a long cable or wireless is best). 

The site is accessed by a very wet and muddy path and so Wellington boots are also essential.

Help will be given throughout the day to enable you to get the most from the situation, and although wildlife is never totally predictable, this hide has never failed me and regularly produces some excellent images.
