Buzzard Photography Day

Based at our Private photography hide in North East Wales, this day gives photographers the opportunity to potentially photograph  the Common Buzzard and other woodland birds and be fully guided and advised by Gary all day.

The day will start with a pre dawn meet up close to the village of Maeshafn, a few miles outside of Mold, this will give time to be in the hide before first light and not be visible to the Buzzards that roost close by in the surrounding woods.

Suitable carrion will be placed out for the Buzzards, who may visit anytime after first light to feed. The hide is situated in beautiful countryside on the edge of a wood, with many woodland species of bird also visiting the hide for the food placed out for them, such as Jays, Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Goldcrest and more.

The hide is extremely spacious with plenty of room both for photographers, bags etc. The birds feed close in to the hide, and lenses with a focal length of 300-500mm will be ideal, with a focal length of 500-600mm (full frame) being ideal for the Buzzard shots.

During the winter months the session in the hide will run to mid afternoon until the light has faded.

The Day can be single occupancy only with Gary, or if 2 friends or relatives wish to share that is also fine, and the cost will be discounted to £275
