– Organised Trips –
This is a unique opportunity to photograph Sparrowhawk, Kingfisher and Water Rail naturally in their environment. The trip is due to run November 2018 ( 7th - 10th). 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.
The cost of this trip is as follows:
£350 for the 4 day Experience.
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...
