This is a unique opportunity to photograph Sparrowhawk, Kingfisher and Water Rail naturally in their environment. The trip is due to run February 2018 ( 22nd - 25th). It is being run as a 4 day trip. I have spent many years visiting and photographing at these particular sites so I have extensive knowledge of how to get the best images from your cameras and utilise the surroundings to your advantage.
This is a brilliant time for activity for both the Sparrowhawk and the Kingfisher and the new Water Rail hide. You will also have the opportunity during the 4 days, if you wish, to make use of the Buzzard/Red Kite Hide and also the Reflection Pool ( For small birds and occasionally the Red Squirrel). If you are at the Sparrowhawk hide early enough, or stay later, you may also be treated to a visit from the Tawny Owl.
I have detailed in the link below additional information and tips so that you get the most from your visit to photograph these stunning birds.
Accommodation: There are some great B & B places so stay in and around Kirkudbright. The prices quoted here for the 4 day experience excludes any accommodation and meals etc. I am currently negotiating with a hotel for rooms but the general prices in the area are in the region of between £35-£70 per room depending upon your taste :) Having said that I usually pay £35 a night when visiting this area and the rooms are clean and en-suite and the food in the bar is superb in terms of quality and price. If you are seeking accommodation please message me first so I can advise you accordingly.
All the information and detail provided should ensure that you have a great time visiting these hides. I will also be on hand to ensure that any help you require to set up and get the most from your visit will be given.
I appreciate that some booking on the trip will be very competent photographers but DO NOT be put off if you are a novice or new to this type of photography. I am there to help and offer advice and ensure you enjoy the experience of spending time in the company of these beautiful birds...
