All workshops are evening and then morning sessions
Horn Mill Trout Fishery, Lyndon Reserve & Rutland Water
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 late afternoon and morning.
The Workshop will start with a mid afternoon meet up to discuss the workshop, and then we will then enjoy an evening 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 dusk you will return to your chosen accommodation, in readiness for the following mornings session.
We will meet at Horn Mill early the following morning, where we will be back in the hide for a morning session.
Once we have finished the morning session, we will travel to a local Coffee shop for a late breakfast, to discuss the action etc.
In terms of camera kit…. For the diving Osprey images, you will require a focal length of 150mm- 300mm, so lenses such as 200, 300mm Prime, 70-200m, 100-400mm, 150-600mm etc will be ideal. And for the hides down at Rutland water, a longer lens will be better.
