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.

Children are very welcome provided they are accompanied by an adult but I do discourage bringing dogs as they can scare the Storks when we are trying to get close up.

Just €14 per person
Are White Storks sightings guaranteed?
Whilst nothing in nature can be guaranteed, it is extremely unlikely that there will be no White Storks present. Silves has White Storks all year and during February they are usually in abundance.
What camera do I need?
Any camera is suitable and although you don’t require super telephoto or zoom lenses, it is recommended that you have a modest magnification available. Feel free to bring along any equipment (various lenses, tripods etc.) you wish, but bear in mind you will be responsible for carrying your equipment. Please Contact Me should you want any advice.
Is this trip dependent on the weather?
Yes and maybe rescheduled due to bad weather. We of course want perfectly clear skies and glorious light, however, this cannot be guaranteed. Should there be inclement weather forecast (rain or strong winds) then the trip will be rescheduled. Should bad weather be forecast then a final decision will be made 5pm the night before and all attendees will be notified by email and/or telephone.
Where is the meeting place?
The location will be communicated nearer the day.
