March update

This month i have visited a new private reserve in Handscross (Millers Wood) which is owned and run by John Stanton. John has done an excellent job in developing this woodland reserve and deserves the support of serious wildlife photographers to further develop this area.
John has cleared some of the trees to create open spaces where he has built several hides each designed to attract different species of woodland birds along with some complementary sets to attract the birds for you to photograph.
John is a wildlife Photographer himself and is passionate about the natural world and offers newcomers workshops at his site to get you started in wildlife photography. When visiting john will advise you which hide is best to use and get you into position and set everything up for you ready to start capturing images straight away. You are also welcome to take along any props that you might like to include if you wish to do so and john will incorporate them into his sets sympathetically.
Below are some examples of the Images that I captured during the day that I spent at the reserve and if you are Interested in visiting yourself then Johns details are on my website in the Links section. All fees charged go to developing the site further and john has ambitious plans for his site which include a Buzzard hide and feeding area.

Another favourite place of mine to visit is the British Wildlife Centre at Lingfield, here you will find a selection of British wildlife to photograph all in natural looking surroundings. This is a place that can be visited throughout the year and you will obtain different types of Images depending on the weather conditions at the time. It is also a good place to practice new techniques and to try out that new equipment that you have just brought for that wildlife holiday that you might have treated yourself too. It doesn't matter what the weather is as there is a cafe on site where you can get a warming hot drink and hot food and decide what keeper talks you are going to attend next. Some of my Images are below to encourage you to visit all taken in February.
