I don't think I have ever had a day of clear blue sky for a bird of prey workshop. Friday, the sun shone from first to last light as we photographed five birds on a farm near Masham, Yorkshire. The habitat on this farm is so varied for photographing captive birds of prey - we have everything: open fields, hedgerows, woodland - and some perfect farm buildings too.
The barns and buildings are just perfect for barn owl and little owl, as are the rusty gates and various farm machinery. Nearby larch woodland made the ideal setting for our long eared owl, and the rural backdrop worked beautifully for the stunning male goshawk.
The next bird of prey photography course will be on Sutton Bank near Thirsk, North Yorkshire. These photography workshops are ideal for gaining skills in wildlife photography.
