Excellent experience photographing the birds
Many thanks to everyone for the excellent experience photographing the birds today and for all your organisation. I enjoyed it very much and the results were better than they first appeared, once on the computer. I would certainly like to do this again and to have other opportunities to improve my skills and learn more about settings.

I would definitely recommend hiring a good lens if you haven't got your own.
It was good for me as I have not previously had the experience of photographing woodland birds. I would definitely recommend hiring a good lens if you haven't got your own.

The hides are well appointed and perfectly positioned. Excellent day, will book again.
I was delighted with this session. I had no idea that I would be able to photograph so many birds in this amount of time and just wish I had received my new 500mm lens before going. The hides are well appointed and perfectly positioned. Excellent day, will book again.

Friendly and knowledgeable instructors...
Beautiful woodland site specifically set up and designed for bird photography. Friendly and knowledgeable instructors, and at my visit, very manageable numbers; I had a great time and even some pictures to be pleased with.

Our absolute favourite find was the Museo Sorolla, a celebration of the life and work of Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923). The museum was once the home of this influential painter.
