Kingfishers 0730-1630 – add a Nocturnal session too and photograph through to 4AM with Herons and Otters

Join me for a day of Kingfisher photography near Stamford in Lincolnshire, Photographing the natural and wild Kingfishers is on the to do list of many photographers and whether you’ve come across Kingfishers before or have never seen the blue streak as one darts past a riverside, photographing these colourful and elusive birds up close is a rewarding challenge, through my guidance and our position you’ll be in the best place to create amazing wildlife photographs of the Kingfishers perched, in flight and diving as the bird breaks the water in an explosion of droplets with a fish in its beak. I’ve been photographing kingfishers for over ten years and still have the same thrill as a bird appears in front of the camera.

From the carefully positioned wooden hide we’ll be within around 4 metres of Kingfishers and a lens of 400-600mm will give frame filling and environmental photographs. For photographs of flying and diving Kingfishers our low over the water position enables frame filling action as the birds explode from under the water.

Extend your day with a nocturnal session, more time photographing the Kingfishers and the chance for night photos of Herons and Otters using flash and LED lighting. All equipment supplied and full tuition given
