Dunsfold Surrey Locations Courses

Following on from a very successful & enjoyable time at Martin Mere in November, here is another great photo opportunity.

I have been photographing kingfishers for over 40 years on a friend's farm at Washford in Somerset. Approximately 1/4 mile of the Washford river runs through the farm. As well as kingfishers, dippers also nest on the river and during the day many other birds will visit including wagtails, herons etc.

The kingfisher is a protected schedule 1 bird so we will not be near the nest, but we will have hides and perches set up along the river at the kingfishers' favourite fishing pools.

There will be three hides with a capacity for five people in total so that each photographer will have their own window.

I will be on hand to help with your setting up etc if required.

Location - Washford, near Watchet, Somerset

Dates - 14 to 18 June 2018 inclusive

Subjects - Kingfishers, dippers, heron, wagtail etc

Equipment required - bridge camera or DLSR with 400 mm lens or longer

Course includes seat in hide with window, light packed lunch, water & toilet facilities (portaloo)

Accommodation - Bed & breakfast available nearby in local villages. We can all meet up for an evening meal in one of the local pubs

Cost - one day £135, two days £255 or three days £355

Book as many days as you wish. Places will be filled on a first come first served basis.
