The Birds PED
Maybe you could call this the long awaited sequel to my rather popular New Forest PED (Taster Session Part 1)....   

New Forest PED - Part 2 - The Birds!

As the event title suggests, we'll be mostly photographing birds.   You'll need a long ish telephoto lens (300mm or higher), or one of those compact cameras with a crazy zoom (x30 or thereabouts).  Just to prove a point, mostly to myself, all of the photos on this page were taken with a relatively cheap Panasonic TZ90 compact camera.

While you don't need a fancy camera, what you will need is some patience and perhaps a bag of bird seed.

Events will be around 2/3 hours in duration.

Event Location: 
Various locations - but normally somewhere around the New Forest.

Please note:

  • Obviously we'll be dealing with wild creatures, and you never know what they might or might not do.    I'll only ever run these PED's where I've had a high hit rate on previous occasions.
  • This will be a fair weather PED so if the forecast looks wet / windy, it'll be rescheduled.

Recommended equipment:

  • A telephoto lens - somewhere around 300mm will be fine, but if you have something longer, bring it.
  • Extra camera batteries
  • A monopod or tripod will make things easier, but isn't essential

Photo Experience Day Review
“From a beginner I have now attended a couple of experience days and social evenings...  All have been fun as well as educational. The social days are a great way to meet like minded people, share experiences while getting more practice with the camera and I hope to do more soon.”
