Following on from this thread...

If anyone is interested in a photography day at the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey, on a friday 17th June, please contact me on the email address below.

This is the photography visit where we would go inside the enclosures with the foxes, squirrels, otters, wildcats and deer, giving you the opportunity for plenty of natural looking shots....

(Oh and just to tempt you, the foxes have just had 5 cubs !!)

You need to be quick to book though, i only have 11 places available !!

HI Andy

I have replied to your e-mail.

Would love to come but I have weddings on both the 17th and 18th

Have a great time (I am sure you will)

How much is this one Andy?
I ask because the 47 that you wanted for the one you were trying to organise in July is way over the top for the small advantage that getting inside the wire of the BWC. It's not as if getting good pics there is difficult anyway.

Thanks for that Ian !

I personally think it is a brilliant opportunity, as it is great to be closer to the animals and to be able to photograph them with no wires to worry about. Not everyone has big lenses !

The first time i went, was on a wildarena day, that cost 99 !!

The price also includes lunch and refreshments.

That's my point Andy.
70-210mm and 105mm

Can't do June, can do July. I'll be in San Francisco (well close by) - boo hoo.

Sounds good until you realise we fly out Sunday, have meetings 8-6 Monday - Thursday and 8-4 Friday and then fly straight home.

Still hoping to get to see the sea otters which are supposed to feed just off the pier near the hotel.

Hi there Andy. I'd like to give some wildlife photography a go as I've not really tried it before - and what better opportunity (if you've got an places left). Email sent.

Thanks Shaun, you are welcome.

A few more places available on this one, if anyone else is interested.

It is a fantastic day out for anyone who hasn't been before.

The day will be pretty much the same as the one wildarena do, (This one) but a bit cheaper (at 47 instead of 89)! and without the tuition, although for anyone wanting hints and tips I'm sure there will be people there who will gladly help in any way, I'm sure I will...

Just send me an email to book your place

Slight change of plans for this Day...

The BWC have a large school group in on Friday 17th June, so have asked me to change it to the 10th June, where there will be no school groups, and we will have the centre to ourselves.

So if anyone would like to book for the 10th June, please let me know.

I will email those who have already booked with me for the 17th June, but there are still about 5 places available.
