Come and spend a morning with me and other like-minded nature and photography lovers in the historic town of Silves amongst the stunning White Storks. Although this trip is designed with photographers in mind, feel free to join us even if you don’t bring a camera!

There will be plenty of opportunities to photograph Storks on their huge nests and point your camera at these giants in flight. We may even be lucky to witness them fighting over nesting rights. Of course, I will be on hand to offer advice on all aspects of photography from exposure settings to bird in flight techniques.

This is the perfect Field Trip if you are wanting to improve your Bird in Flight technique!

The morning will consist of the following schedule;

» A brief talk about the White Storks and their habitat, lifestyle, feeding, breeding and migration patterns.
» Photographic opportunities of Storks on their huge nests with walks to various nest sites around the city of Silves.
» Photographic opportunities of Storks in flight.
» During the morning I will be on hand to help with any photographic tips and techniques from exposure settings to Bird in Flight Techniques.

Although it helps if you have a little experience in photography anyone is welcome on this field trip as I will offer help and advice. It can be used as a followup or a taster to my Digital Photography Fundamentals Workshop.
