Photographing Kingfishers in the Wild
Specific hides can offer great encounters for kingfishers, though they can be expensive and not for everyone. This workshop offers a different approach. Focussing on seeking out kingfisher habitats that allow you to enjoy the spectacle of kingfisher behaviour day after day.
We'll spend the day looking at fieldcraft techniques and camera skills that will enable you to go out and start creating magical encounters of your own, in your own local patches.
Intro to Wildlife Photography at the spectacular Leighton Moss
In terms of wildlife places don't get much more inspiring than Leighton Moss. Otters gliding on ice, Red Deer marching over the marsh as Marsh Harriers dance overhead, spooking large flocks of waders that overwinter here. It's the perfect place to get lost in nature (with a camera!).
And if you hang about afterwards you might be lucky enough to catch the epic murmurations this reserve is famous for!
