You've got to get out there more if you want good photos of, or to see more of, birds - it's as simple as that.

And leave the dog at home because they can be quite disruptive and birds will get easily stressed by them.

With birds it's a waiting game - you could walk down a nice trail and see nothing, but sit on a bench and wait and you'd be surprised how that 'empty' trail will come to life.

And it's also like landscape photogrpahy as to capture great landscape photogrpahy you've got to go to great places - with birds you've got to go where the birds are. You won't find a Long-Eared Owl or Nightjar down at your local park (usually ha ha).

But sometimes - well, lots of times - you'll have a day where you don't see much and that's why, as I've said, 'you've got to get out there more'.

So my advice is to get yourself (you alone) down to a reserve or a long walk on a nice trail with both hands free for photography and take the dog out elsewhere on another day where both he/she can enjoy your company and you his/hers.
