Thought I would just pop in and introduce myself........my name is Val and I have a great love of wildlife photography - in particular birds.
Want to get more into getting shots of animals and birds in the wild rather than captivity - difficult sometimes but hoping to get some help and advice from you guys on the best places to go.

for birds garden birds are very common and very beautiful too so i think they are the best.
if you have a garden set up a few feeders and you will find all sorts of birds there in no time
remember different birds like different things.
if you dont have a garden i am sure there is a nature reserve or just a small woodland nearby, there are also loads there.
hope this helps
As alianar has said, garden birds are easy targets and it doesn't require a lot of work to attract them.
I've got one large feeder which I fill with cheap wild bird seed from the local market.
I also scatter left over bread on the ground and that's as complicated as it gets!
I've always got birds of some kind visiting the garden.
Obviously, moreso during the winter months when there's not much natural food about and again when the nestlings are becoming fledgelings. Watching Starlings feeding young that are larger than themselves is always a laugh although a shot of it has so far eluded me.
Hi all, just dropped in and thought I'd ask a quick question! I'm wanting to take some pictures of birds, I live around the south coast of Enland, and was wondering if you could give me some advice. I'm going to be using a Canon 400d with a 75-300mm zoom lens, would this setup be ok? or should I be looking for a different setup? Any help would be most welcome.
i live on the south cost too, in bournemouth.
that setup is fine i use a sony a450 and tamron 70-300 so very similar.
hope this helps

I am very new to photography , my hubby got me my first digi camera last summer , up untill then it had always been disposable ones
I am very much on the learning process , and thanks to a few kind souls on the main forum , I have learnt loads.
I pretty much like taking pics period but wildlife and landscapes find me at my best right now.

I also thought I had better introduce myself,I am John and I live in the central belt of Scotland, my love is Bird and wildlife photography a novice really so this forum I hope should help me on my way to being more successful using the equipment I am using at present which is a Canon 7D with a Sigma 170-500mm f5.6.3 APO DG Lens and a Canon 70-300mm f4 IS USM for some close in shots.
Hope I get to speak to all around the forum or here
Hi - new member alert
I am an amature photographer, learning my way around my Nikon D5000. I love wildlife in general and love to photograph all sorts of birds, but love birds of prey. I am lucky to live in the countryside, so I am minutes away from a photography 'challenge'!
Hope to get some good shots and post on here!
Welcome, it looks like you are going to be adding some great photos - e.g. Glen Etive.
loads to share, here on ePz.
