I wondered if anyone had any more information into why so little is done to protect birds of prey - especially in Scotland.
I understand moorland managed by the RSPB accounts for just under 1% of the UK's total Hen Harrier population.
It seems frustrating living here in the North that we are...
I am giving the annual charity guest presentation at Peterhead Camera Club on October 9th. They tell me they're expecting a sell out :eek!:
All proceeds go to charity and I am not making any financial gain (so hope it's okay with the Mods)...
Seems like a better option than my portable hard drives/discs. Was thinking about a new RAID set up but this seems the best way to back up.
Not sure on how the charges could add up you were frequently storing images
Read this with interest
Just trying to work out what to take, bearing in mind weight restrictions etc
I have 7D and 1D bodies so would probably have two cameras ready.
The 300 f2.8 is what I am thinking as its the lightest and takes the 2x and 1.4x so well. though if I were permanently...
I have up to four pairs of swallows nesting in my garage this year two nested early and the first broods are nearly away. I was set up for shooting them fledge the other morning and was surprised to notice that there are three adults feeding the chicks at one nest. A female and two males. One of...
Interested to hear if anyone has made one of these. I am probably going to give it a go for use in shallow water.
Also interested in experience using one as there is very little cover where I plan to use it.
Crofters in Sutherland and on Skye have raised fresh concerns about white-tailed sea eagles taking young lambs.
Sea eagles, the UK's largest bird of prey, were extinct in Britain by the early years of the 20th Century.
I am attending a wedding in South Africa (Cape Town) in Feb/March 2013 and am looking into arranging some follow on wildlife photography.
I have asked a variety of my clients who have done photography safaris and the recommendations are various and all different. For example;
I finally explored some relict pine just two miles from my house. Delighted to find Cresties and Red Squirrel, I also found this scat on a small wooden bridge - any ideas?
Hope fully time to get the peanut butter out if its what I hope it is!
Thinking of heading over to Islay in a couple of weeks. Have been a couple of times but never in Autumn.
Any thoughts on whether this is a good time to photograph the geese. I've been before and found that is only really possible to get shots of the flocks moving around - this is fine.
Thought I would just check out this one. I was watching a flock of 40 Wagtails from my hide and this one was behaving differently, had a different mask and some spotting (?) under where the bib would normally be.
Presumably just in moult?
Microsoft have decided to switch their free, on-line design and hosting service to a chargeable service with less features. They have switched from something called small business server to office 365. Worst of all the transition of websites can only be completed manually. This is a bit of a...
Have recently spent some time in Eastern Poland - highlights below.
Thanks to Karol Zub assistant professor, mammal expert and all round top bloke for spending time showing us round the forests.
For the first time visitor Eastern Poland offers a great place to spend time searching for...
Any help appreciated, thanks.
Large passage of Arctic skuas by my house today. This one felt quite broad winged, large and heavy. I've gone round the bend and talked myself in and out of three species with this!
I have noticed that the 7D seems to underexpose more (when compared to xxD and my 1D) when at -1/3. As such I've found that I don't need to set to the stock -1/3 exposure when shooting in Av.
Anyone else noticed this difference.
I have a client/friend who is visiting the UK in May 2012 and will be spending time in Norfolk. He is looking for a photographic guide. I can find several birds tours visiting the usual spots (which I could do myself) - I was wondering if there is a specialist in the Norfolk with knowledge of...
