Woodland Birds Photography Workshop

Photoshoot in the Scottish Borders, nr Hawick.

It would be unforgivable not to take advantage of the mild winter weather. Members of the Midlothian Camera Club arranged several organised visits to wildlife photographer Ron McCombe’s bird hide, ideal for garden and woodland bird pursuits. On my visit, it was a bright breezy day, Ron’s shelter offered a comfortable environment to shoot from, and under camouflage we were able to shoot our avian friends at a proximity suitable for several focal lengths.  

Bird activity

Small birds in flight are flighty by nature and are a challenge to capture. I wasn’t too fussed about what I was shooting bird wise, anything out flying caught my eye. All in all, it was a productive morning, a big thanks to Ron for being such a welcoming host.

Photoshoot at Bellymack Hill Farm - Kite Feeding Station

Galloway Kite Trail, Castle Douglas

A day out at Bellymack Hill Farm (October 21) at the Kite feeding station in Galloway to experience the delights of Kites for my first time. What a day, avian feeding on a grand scale brought many opportunities, I was well impressed. The drive down from Edinburgh, Midlothian took a few hours but the trip was worth every minute. There was sunshine, cloudy skies and wind, lots of wind. I expected the Kites to devour the buckets of scraps on the food station, however this didn't happen, I'm told the fresh to strong breeze played it's part, no doubt making it challenging for the Kites to make their approach, this lent itself to more bird in flight pictures than I expected, so no complaints. There wasn't much of a feeding frenzy on this occasion, I'm told that's not always the case. There was still lots of meaty remains left on the table when we left at 4pm. I'll be sure to return again, windy or not.

BLOG

The Calibrated Eye | A photography blog by John Gilchrist 

Photography genres that are general in nature, images and inspiration for anyone interested in exploring a photographers’ blogging space. 

This is the spot on the website where you can check out some of my random blogging topics and view all the things that I enjoy taking pictures of when I am not photographing weddings and the like. An informal weblog, it's not an educational blog, so don't expect too much in the way of expert photography tips and techniques or qualified reviews on cameras, lenses and the latest photography gear, it's more of an outlet to channel some latest activity or reflect on and recycle past images. 

I spy with my trained eye...
