Last Thursday saw our first "Owl and Bird of Prey Photographic day" of 2011 take place. Having built on our 1st day back in November, and the trial day I ran at the end of last Summer, this past Thursday proved to be a huge success.
We started off in our ancient bluebell woodland, photographing both tawny owls and long-eared owls before making use of our expansive nature reserve with many other types of owls and our peregrine, Jack. We then ended up in the woods with Ethel before rounding the day off with a late heron feed.
All in all we got through seven different types of bird, flew 5 different types of bird and had an opportunity to photograph most of them with their prey!
We have another 3 of these days planned for the rest of the year, plus an extra couple being run by wildarena. They are booking up extremely fast, and if demand is there, we may well be looking at arranging a few more dates too.
A gallery of the types of photos you can take on one of these days is currently in motion, link will be here when finished, and we may well add a gallery for the types of photographs you can catch on our normal BWC Mammal days too.
