A few Ephotzine members are meeting at Stockley Farm Bird of Prey Cenre for a day of photograpying and handling the birds.

Birds include, Owls, Hawks and Falcons. Part of the day will include a walk with a chance to photograph some of the birds in flight, although in my case I have never really managed this.

Nice to meet everyone and the day was good.

The shots are good too.

I think Gary and Claire went out of their way to make the day special for us and I will try and set up another meet with them next year.

Thanks for arranging a great day out Barry. I had a lovely time and thankfully the weather played ball for us too. My wife and my son thoroughly enjoyed themselves too

A super time was had by all of us & hopefully some of the shots will turn out ok too

Cheers, Sean

Barry, thanks for arranging another great day. Gary and Claire showed great patients with us lot and where so willing to try out new things. They did a brilliant job considering they had never done anything like this before.

Hi Claire, I think the concensus would be we had a great day out.

Still a few others to upload shots yet, they are hanging back to surprise us all, or waiting for the rush to end Wink
