Red Kite

Red Kite At Gigrin

After the mayhem of Mull during July, August seemed pretty quiet. I had some workshops with the little owl, but when I'm running those, I rarely use my own camera.

So it falls to a day spent in mid-Wales, with a client on a tuition-based workshop, enjoying the sight of the red kites feeding at Gigrin Farm. I had hoped the day would have seen more action during the morning, but the Welsh weather put an end to that, and we toured around the Elan Valley, discussing the issues at hand.

Then for the main event, I had booked us a place in the Tower Hide, and we enjoyed an elevated view of the action. Thankfully our discussions in the morning proved to be correct, and rather than the client being at fault, it was merely some of the settings within the camera, and he left with some stunning images.

I always enjoy watching the kites, and this image from the session caught my eye.

If you would like to spend a day with me, learning something new about your camera, or addressing a problem, or trying a new technique out, please drop me an email, or fill out one of the booking forms on this website, and I'll be in touch.
