Join Gary down in Rutland to photograph Ospreys diving to catch fish at Horn Mill Trout Farm, a few miles from Rutland Water in the early morning and late afternoon/evening.

Gary is totally passionate about Ospreys, and has been photographing them seriously for well over 15 years now, and for the 10 years Horn Mill has been open he has been using the hide for his own images and professionally leading workshop groups, you will not find a more experienced Osprey photography guide.

The Workshop will start with an early morning session in the Osprey Photography hide at Horn Mill, we will have the services of a professional spotter, who is located away from the hide, and will keep us informed of any Ospreys in the area, and when they are coming in to dive.

In between Ospreys visiting the farm there is likely to be visits from the resident Kingfishers that perch outside of the hide, and also Red Kites which hover over the pool and will swoop and pick up any dead or injured fish near the surface, plus lots of other local wildlife such as Little egrets, Wagtails and much more.

After the session finishes at about 9am, you have the middle part of the day to rest and recuperate ready for meeting up in the afternoon for the evening session in the hide, finishing at dusk.

In terms of camera kit…. For the diving Osprey images, you will require a focal length of about 300mm, so lenses such as 300mm, 70-200m, 100-400mm, 150-600mm, 200-500 etc will be ideal. A camera body that has a decent frame rate to catch as many images of the birds as they dive. If you have any doubt about your kit being suitable please do ask.
