Tips, Tricks and Locations – Roger says “This talk shows how to go about photographing wildlife subjects in the UK. It explains what equipment you will need, how to work from hides, how to set up a feeding station, how to stalk wild birds/animals, as well as showing some of the top locations in the UK where you can go to get great nature shots. In the talk I explain how to get within range of small timid subjects without scaring them, as well as how to avoid many of the pitfalls that many people make. It covers birds, mammals, reptiles, butterflies and insects, wildflowers, fungi and amphibians.” Wow, this should start our New Year with a bang.
