Getting close

Hi all

Many people have made the comment on my pictures in the gallery 'how do I get so close to the birds I photograph', the simple truth is that I spend a lot of time watching where they regularly go and perch, feed etc and then I get set up near these sites and wait for them to come close to me, this makes a big difference, as most are so wary that if you are moving towards them all they will do is retreat, so you just end up chasing them. Patience is as they say a virtue.

Nigel: what about setting up a fieldcraft workshop one day so members can actually watch the master in action? We would obviously have to pick a location where people could be in a hide, or otherwise hidden, so they didn't spoil the object of the excercise.
